    I have disabled hooks and plug-ins and it works. When I enable plug-ins and hooks, it quits. I have all add-ons disabled too.


    I got everything to work except Reply With Quote. If you double-click it, it will come up. If you click it once, it will show a spinning wheel and never continue.
    Any ideas?

    If disabling hooks lets it work, but disabling every product does not, it means you probably have one or more "stray" plugins- these are plugins not assigned to a specific product.

    Go to Plugin Manager in Admin CP (Not Product Manager) and see if you have any plugins at the very top listed under the "vBulletin" product- if so, disable these using the check boxes. These plugins cannot be disabled any other way except by disabling hooks or doing them 1 by 1 here.

      That did it. This is what I had listed there:
      vBulletin init_startup [Edit] [Delete]
      web ajax_start

      Thank you kindly.

        Check what those plugins are. Did you put them there?

        Those hooks are often used by hackers.

        Check your admin usergroup:
        AdminCP > Usergroups > Usergroup Manager > Administrators > Show All primary Users (from dropdown)
        Are there any admins you do not recognise?
