Just a suggestion from the peanut gallery, but maybe we could add on more point on the pinned post, and that would be :

Don't ask for advice if you are not willing to take it.

Get's real frusterating for us volunteers who try to help folks and the just seem to REFUSE to follow directions of answer questions even!

As I was reading the replies to this warning, I saw that jgweed said that someone had posted a post in the wrong forum, and I was wondering how you figure out which forum is the right one to post in. I am not very good with computers and I came here to learn. I was wondering if there was some kind of guide that would direct us as to where to post? And i'm sorry if this is the wrong place to post my question.....

Great forum. Just thought I would add that everyone here seems very kind considerate and respectful of one another.

STARS:
One of the many tasks of moderators is to move posts to more appropriate forums. Which forum to move it to is determined by a lot of experience and a knowledge of the general practice at BC that a new member would not be expected- - -or required--- to know to get a problem resolved or a question answered.
A new member, for example, might place a post about a virus problem in the XP forum, thinking that since they used XP, it should go there. There is nothing "wrong" with putting it there; but moving it to a forum devoted to discussing viruses will enable it get faster attention from members with experience dealing with infections since they generally read that forum first. Some posts, if in a completely "wrong" forum could easily get "lost," and given the heavy volume of posts, it could be soon moved to the second or third page and never read. Incidentally, keeping like problems together helps other members with the same or similar problems, find solutions.

There is an exception. Posts of HJT logs should always (this is stated in theHJT log posting instructions) go in the HJT forum. Our great team of trained volunteers will only work with logs posted there since there is some control (one member-one volunteer) and a fair first posted, first reviewed order. Posting logs elsewhere, moreover, opens them up to non-expert advice or multiple "helpers" and this could do a lot more harm than good. Logs posted in other forums are therefore always moved to the HJT forum.

Bottom Line
Post your non-HJT log problem or question where you think it should go, since if you don't post you will not be able to get help.

Regards,
John

[My first post to bleeping computer - which I reached by hitting a tutorial via google]

Perhaps,
in addition to date joined and similar details about posters, a date last read of the/a "how to post" guide is placed in the left-hand margin, it would be interesting to see if those that fall short of the guidelines have
____ a] not read them
or __ b] read but not taken them on-board

and/or

a nuisance-flag message saying "Never read the how to post guide" is automatically inserted at the start of a post if the "I have read and will try to follow the guidelines" undertaking has not been made.

Must admit that I have at times answered the poster with the canned reply, feel free to use it too:


"Hi, I am sorry that this post is in longhand English but if you would care to place my reply in the given link I am sure all will become more understandable to you."

eragoneragon,

I moved your HJT log to the appropriate forum.
Here, is the link:
Hijackthis Log: Please Help Diagnose

NOTE:
Please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post, there will be 1 reply. The team member, glancing over the replies, might think someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.

Also, don't make any changes to your system, as that could change the results of the posted log, making it more difficult to properly clean your system.
