Some helpful hints to posters. Read before you post.
« on: March 03, 2007, 05:53:28 AM »
There is some basic info needed to make helping a lot easier

1. Describe the problem with as much detail as you can, even if you think it is silly or sounds
stupid post it.

2. What you had been doing when the problem occurred

3. Your operating system (OS)

4. If you have recently add or removed any software or hardware

5. If the problem is random or not

6. If it is an on line issue is it every page or just a few pages

7. Did you get or see any error codes

8. Have you checked for any problems in your device manager or system log file and if so what are they?

9. Is system restore on or off

10. Have you recently had a run in with a virus and do you have the following installed and updated
Spybot S&D, Adaware, and CCleaner along with your updated virus protection

11. Have run a registry cleaner or messed with the registry in any way

Posting the system configuration helps a lot when it could be a hardware problem.

Make the topic indicative of your problem. Don't just write "help" or "problem." Many people don't even open a topic so titled.
