      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.

Hello,

 

I'm new here, but I have read all the FAQ and posting rules, so I hope I'm giving all the info needed.

 

I am running Vista Home Premium on an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4200+ 2.20ghz.

 

Windows is running a bit sluggish, which may be related to the problem that's causing me more grief: constant redirection/popups to

http://winantivirus.com/download/2007/inde...amp;p=&ex=1

amongst other sites, mostly ones advertising spyware removal tools.

 

I have run Spybot and Adaware (both updated last night) and AVG free edition, again fully updated. Spybot and AA both noted quite a few problems, but 'got rid of them'. AVG also spotted one virus but stupidly I didn't make a note of it.

 

I also did an online at Trend Micro, which spotted a virus, again unnoted by me, but deleted anyway, according to the website.

 

Here is my hijackthis log.. there's quite a lot of stuff on here that I'm concerned about, especially the 04 and 010 entries, some of which refuse to be 'fixed'.

A friend, the other day, installed Office 2007 on here, and I'm not positive it's an entirely clean version, though nothing obvious relating directly to the prog cropped up in any of the scans.

 

I also have 40 processes running and 40 services, though I have just looked again and it's now 42 for both - perhaps this is due to HT and this window.. I don't know how to copy and paste this info, if I need to.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm fairly knowledgeable about PCs, but some areas I'm not keen on mucking about with for fear of doing something irreparable. Sorry if I've missed out any info.

 

Thank you.

Hi,

 

You may want to print out these instructions for reference, since you will have to restart your computer during the fix.

 

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. Close it.

 

Disable Trojan Hunter Guard:

 

Please disable Trojan Hunter Guard, as it may interfere with the fix.

To disable Trojan Hunter Guard:

  • Go to TrojanHunter Guard in the lower right corner of your screen. It is a light blue icon with a magnifying glass that can be difficult to see but the handle is red.
  • Right click it and select settings. Uncheck "Load at startup" and "Enabled"

Once your log is clean you can re-enable Trojan Hunter Guard.

 

=*=

 

Close all programs leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following, making sure you get them all and not any others by mistake:

 

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant =

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch =

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [] ??e

 

Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.

 

 

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

 

Enable Trojan Hunter guard.

 

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

 

Let me know of the problem persist.
