Hi chocholo is there any chance of increasing the attachment size within the virus and worms forum to 500k as the size at the moment is on the upper limit for logs

This might a silly question but I have just joined this forum & wondered if there is an option to change the time zone. My forum page is showing an hour behind.
I can't see any time settings in my profile.

You need to reach 20 posts before you can change that.

How does someone go about posting new messages??  I used one area that said 'new message' and was advised I was blocked....I just got here!  Maybe it's because they already know I'm madder than a wet hen with the lack of info and support offered to paid subscribers.

Certain options require 20 posts before they are available to you. I am not certain of all these options but I believe adding a signature is one of them.

Good news is, after 3 posts, there is no more Captcha.

Once you get to 20 posts, you go under Profile -> modify profile -> forum profile. From here you can add a signature.

Can anyone tell me why I got my bum slapped for posting a solution to a malware/virus problem when the other solutions offered seemed to not be working.I thought a FORUM was a place for an exchange of ideas,Is this one just for the people that know GOD personally??

That depends totally on where you injected your "solution". More information will result in a more detailed reply. :)
