      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

bfastfao.sys problem

2 posts in this topic

Tried to fire up Homeworld 2 today and I got an odd message. AVG Free threw a fit about a file in my User Temp folder called "bfastfao.sys" and the copy protection on the disk won't let the game start. It says "Conflict with Disk Emulator Software detected. See www.securom.com/emulation for more details." The funny thing is, I've been playing this game for months with no problems, just played it two days ago in fact. May be unrelated, but last week somebody tried to charge some things on the internet with my debit card. I got it stopped like right now (BofA is good for something after all!) but I have to wonder.....I ran Spybot SD and it found some stuff it didn't like, including the bfastfao.sys. I cleaned it and then ran CCleaner as well and really cleaned things up. THen I went to the registry and searched for the bfastfao.sys and located an instance of it in a "Search Assistant" heading I couldn't trace back to anything. I deleted the entire heading. I also deleted my entire Temp folder from Safe Mode.

 

Here it the funny thing. I uninstalled and reinstalled the game and it works fine until I install the Version 1.1 patch I downloaded from Sierra games. That's when the problems start. Every time I start the game that bfastfao.sys file appears in my Temp folder. And of course the game won't start. Again, I had no problems with these files or that game until today.

 

Here is my log:
