We will be happy to answer your questions.
Give it some time after you post, so others

I'm just wondering where and/or how I post my problems.


Yours is a good, and understandable question.

Is this where I post them?

No.

Questions about the way your operating system
is working (or not working right) would be posted
in the main area called Operating Systems.
If it involved windows95, win98 or winME that forum is first listed.
If it involved win2000, winNT, winXP, win2003, the next down the list .
Linux is next, then
Apple.

The next main area as you scroll down the discussion board is Software & Hardware.
If your question involved a Business Application such as Microsoft Office, it'd go there.
Games, if the problem or information you post involves a game
All Other Applications would likely be where questions about programs you use
Hardware if it involved the way a device was working/not working
Tips & Tricks is not really problem oriented, more solutions perhaps to PC related use.
Graphic Design & Photo Editing is self-explanatory
Audio & Video of course involving problems or programs information involving music or movies
Programming involves problems & solutions to them in writing software or programming

The next main area is Security.
Virus News would not be a place to post problems
Updates links to another forum
Anti-virus, Firewall, Privacy Products & Protection Methods
HijackThis Logs and Analysis would be where you post if you have run anti-spyware but still have problems
Spyware & Malware Self-Help & Reading Room is to use if you want to learn how to do particular removal techniques based on your individual problem's symptoms.

Two more main categories remain, Internet & Networking and finally General Topics.
I think you simply need to determine basically what area your problem falls into.

Then post your comments just like you posted your introduction.
Include details that will help someone understand your problem,
such as what kind of computer you use, and which OS (operating system) you use.
Error messages, unusual actions, if a change from normal, what is normal?

Don't worry,
if it is a security issue
& you have anti-spyware and anti-virus programs running
but they have not solved the problem, then please read this and follow the advice.
