      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.

possible virus/spyware - 2 Duplicates Deleted...

4 posts in this topic

Edit: 2 Duplicate Topics deleted... Please stick to 1 Topic per computer...

 

My PC this morning just suddenly notified me that my display settings has encountered an error (as well as as 4 hours ago). Well, something to that effect, don't remember what it exactly said in the windows message box. Well, before the box pops up, my windows OS reverts to a 256 color graphics look like safe mode but less colors, really distorted, mostly bright colors like pink, red, orange, and yellow. The box tells me I should shutdown all my programs, and then restart my computer, and then when windows starts up again, windows will notify me with the problem that i can send to Microsoft. There are two scenarios that can happen, if I don't restart my computer or turn of the main power button on the cpu on and off (to restart windows), my computer will suddenly reboot itself and start over by itself, but then, it starts with the new horrible 256 bad color scheme and then, there's a screen right after the startup that looks kind of like the screen in the movie the matrix, except instead of green colored binary numbers, it's a bunch of gibberish looking letters, symbols, and emoticon looking things that fall downward like the matrix thing colored in white letters and symbols. Then, the Windows XP Profesional screen loads up still with the bad color scheme, then my computer before it logs onto windows reboots, blue screens, and gives me about a half second to read the report and then the nightmare happens again over and over. I don't know how I made it stop temporarily after this morning, but then i entered the configuration menu where you have to press enter or an f button right when your pc starts, then i exited without saving and my system was back to normal. Like I said, it happened again around 4 hours ago, but instead of me waiting for a while to find out what processes is running (maybe some scary looking software probably eating up my cpu process), i turned off the power on and off and everything was fine. Anyway, have scanned my computer with AVG free, Ad-aware, Spybot, Spyware Doctor, and Dr Web CureIt all in safe mode and it found nothing. This problem is giving me quite a worry. Please help me.... Thanks so much! Please check my Hijackthis log file. Thanks again!

Hi,

 

Nothing suspicious was found on your log.

 

What you are describing looks to me like your Monitor or your Graphics card is bad.
