No sorry Mac,

This is all anyone sees the X box.

If you get it working, you will also see it in your profile.

Sorry, that should have read... this is all anyone is seeing on your posts.

Do you need any help?

no im fine avast works great.

Errmm right, but we're not talking about Avast working... or am I going bonkers  ;)

The 'full' url should do it, sometimes lower case is important, why not experiment with one of the Avast logos. Technical posted a link under the BEST BEST BEST topic.

I think YaBB (webpage developer) make some 'restrictions' for the picture (size, type, widht...). Maybe clicking the help button on the top of the page...  8) or here.

MacLover, your picture points to:

http://www.avast.com/forum/YaBBImages/avatars/C:/powermacG5side06232003.jpg

Which tells me you've inserted C:/powermacG5side06232003.jpg in your prefs, which is clearly wrong.

You must find some webhosting, upload the picture there and then insert the full url (http://site/path/picture.jpg) in the box.

We don't support uploadable avatars.

Cojo, if you seach Free Web Hosting in Google, you'll find some free services fot it. I mean, you can have your own homepage, onw ftp site, store things, and so on... Of course, there are limitations for it.

If I can suggest you one, try http://free.prohosting.com/  ;D
