      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.

      PLEASE READ - Reversing upgrade   02/23/2017

      We have found that this new upgrade is somewhat of a disaster.  We are finding lots of glitches in being able to post and administer the forum.  Additionally, there are new costs associated with the upgrade that we simply cannot afford.  As a result, we have decided to reverse course and go back to the previous version of our software.  Since this will involve restoring it from a backup, we will lose posts that have been added since January 30 or possibly even some before that.    If you started a topic during that time, we urge you to make backups of your posts and you will need to start the topics over again after the change.  You can simply paste the copies of your posts that you created at that point.    If you joined the forum this month, you will need to re-register since your membership will be lost along with the posts.  Since you have a concealed password, we cannot simply restore your membership for you.   We are going to backup as much as we can so that it will reduce inconvenience for our members.  Unfortunately we cannot back everything up since much will be incompatible with the old version of our software.  We apologize for the confusion and regret the need to do this even though it is not viable to continue with this version of the software.   We plan to begin the process tomorrow evening and, if it goes smoothly, we shouldn't be offline for very long.  However, since we have not done this before, we are not sure how smoothly it will go.  We ask your patience as we proceed.   EDIT: I have asked our hosting service to do the restore at 9 PM Central time and it looks like it will go forward at that time.  Please prepare whatever you need to prepare so that we can restore your topics when the forum is stable again.

Browser Hijack - Thispageisnotavailable.com, qwerti.com, etc...

5 posts in this topic

Someone please help! My situation is this. Somewhere along the road I have picked up some sort of browser hijacker that sends me to an advertisement page when I enter an improper URL. The ad page always looks pretty much the same but the name of it changes. I have attempted to get rid of it several ways including using some of the more popular adware/spyware removal tools and even formatted my C drive and reinstalled windows but its still on here. I ran hijack this a couple times and ended up making my browsers not work somehow. So now that I have reinstalled windows for a 3rd time today I was hoping someone that knows what they are doing can help me fix this insanity. My Hijack this log ran after this last install is below.

Hello,

 

Print this topic it will make it easier for you to follow the instructions and complete all of the necessary steps.

 

Please download FixWareout from this site:

http://downloads.subratam.org/Fixwareout.exe

 

Save it to your desktop and run it. Click Next, then Install, then make sure "Run fixit" is checked and click Finish. The fix will begin; follow the prompts. You will be asked to reboot your computer; please do so. Your system may take longer than usual to load; this is normal.

 

When your system reboots, follow the prompts. Afterwards, HijackThis may launch, if it does close it.

 

Disable Microsoft Windows Defender:

We need to disable your Microsoft Windows Defender Real-time Protection as it may interfere with the fixes that we need to make.

  • Open Microsoft Windows Defender. Click Start, Programs, Windows Defender
  • Click on Tools, General Settings.
  • Under Real-time protection options, unselect the Turn on real-time protection check box
  • Click Save

After all of the fixes are complete it is very important that you enable Real-time Protection again.

 

  • Close all open Explorer windows and browsers
  • Run HijackThis
  • Click on the Scan button and when complete
  • Put a check beside all of the items listed below
  • Click on the "Fix Checked" button
  • When complete and all files removed, close the application.

At the end of the fix, you need to restart your computer again.

 

These instructions below are for Windows 2K/XP, should they be different in Vista I woulp appreciate you tell me how you did it if ever you need to.

 

Note:

If you have problems with your internet connection after this fix, try this.

Please go to Start -> Control Panel, and choose Network Connections. Then right click on your default connection, usually Local Area Connection or Dial-up Connection if you are using Dial-up, and left click on properties. Double-click on the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) item and select the radio button that says Obtain DNS servers automatically. Click OK twice, and restart your computer.

 

Enable Microsoft Windows Defender.

 

Finally, please post the contents of the logfile C:\fixwareout\report.txt, along with a new HijackThis log.
