* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Ipsec trojan question
« on: January 23, 2012, 11:59:37 pm »
Running Avanquest Fix It Utilities v.12.0.32.19 on Win XP v.5.1.2600 Service Pack 3
Found that web browser was running slowly and search engines were being re-directed while security settings were being re-set to a low level
Ran a virus scan and came up with Trojan IPSEC at C:Windows\system32\drivers\ipsec.sys
Fix It failed to either quaranteen or fix the problem, so as per the suggestion of Avantquest's tech support, I re-did the scan in safe mode and deleted the infected file.
Now, I have no internet connection.
What can I do from here?

Do you have access to a working and non-infected copy of Windows XP SP 3?  If sio, you can copy ipsec.sys from it to C:Windows\system32\drivers\ on your current system.  You may need to do this is safe mode.

Yes, I believe I do.
My GF's laptop runs on XP, but I wanted to be sure it was going to be as simple as copy and paste the missing file before I made a mess trying

Is there a way to change the screen resolution in safe mode?
Mine goes to 640 so you can only see about a third of the screen
