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?
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, thenApple
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 gameAll Other Applications
would likely be where questions about programs you use Hardware
if it involved the way a device was working/not workingTips & Tricks
is not really problem oriented, more solutions perhaps to PC related use.Graphic Design & Photo Editing
is self-explanatoryAudio & Video
of course involving problems or programs information involving music or moviesProgramming
involves problems & solutions to them in writing software or programming
The next main area is Security
would not be a place to post problemsUpdates
links to another forumAnti-virus, Firewall, Privacy Products & Protection MethodsHijackThis Logs and Analysis
would be where you post if you have run anti-spyware but still have problemsSpyware & 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?
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.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/how-to-post-a-hijackthis-log/
