@ ladycharades
Why not start your own new topic and we can try to help you.

Forum Profile access you need to have 20 posts (no longer classed as a newbie) - The problem comes from drive by spammers, who having registered put objectionable or commercial links in their profile signature to try and gain link promotion, etc.

There have also been cases of the PM function being abused to spam forum members, so you will notice that you can't use the PM function either.

Unfortunately because of the actions of others legitimate members suffer by the actions to prevent this spamming.

My system is Win XP Pro 64bit and I have used Avast free since I built it roughly a couple of years ago. I've upgraded as they came along ( now on 5.0.594) and have had no problems except a slowing of Avast at startup.
I use Windows firewall, Superantispyware Pro and Malwarebytes. Preview pane in OE turned off and that's it, touch wood never had a problem.

I really just joined the forum to thank everyone for such a great free Anti Virus programme.
