this would be a no brainer. the people in that forum help with computer registeries, and other stuff that can easily go so wrong u will be looking at a new computer. thats why only trained pros can reply to the peoples problems with their problems there. also they help only help with the removal of spyware/malware/and all the ware, again if u do this wrong u can really messed up your computer. that is why only the trained pros of that forum can help. no regular forum flooders (like me :thumbsup:)

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.

There are several reasons for not allowing all members to post replies in this forum, though they are more than welcome to read these threads.

First, posts are taken on a first come, first served basis; when you reply to a new HJT log, it may lead one member of the volunteer team to think that another teammember is working on it, and pass it by.
Second, the ability to analyse a log requires a lot of experience and expertise, which not all members have. A member of the HJT team goes through a learning curve before he is allowed to post to live logs; non-team members replying or analyzing logs in a genuine desire to help people, may simply misguide the original poster or interfere with the dialogue between the user and the teammember.
Third, many people might assume that anyone replying to their posts is a team member. BC believes that people posting a logshould do so knowing that team members have the requisite experience and expertise.

I hope this answers your question,

The HijackThis forum is for the purpose of helping people with problems. Posting nonsense in that forum helps no one at all and is a waste of time also.

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.

peanuts, if you have to ask, you didn't read the instructions. Try it sometime.
