Welcome to you, kalsholi It was new to us at one time, too.

You've made a post ... make more.
choose a question or reply to a post on the board.

General chat?
Forum games?

Security if you have a malware problem.

Open the forums (areas in discussion) and read the "pinned topics" to get some help.
patiently patrolling, plenty of persisant pests n' problems ...

That is not unusual, really ...

Discussion pages are full of what we call forums.

Operating Systems first.
If your cursor turns to a little hand, that word(s) is a link, and will take ya someplace else.

Let's start here:


click and you're at the portal page, or "home".

Each of the words "home" "tutorials" "discussion" "glossary & "resources" at the top are links to sections within this website.

Same is true of the words below them, above the "welcome back ..."

In fact this site has more links than a breakfast fit for a logger.

Some just look like innocent words sitting there, but they are ready for you to use.
Navigation will be helped if you know that we usuaally underline active links.

Also, near the top, below what I described, you'll see an arrow pointing to bold face type ...
(left to right) it will always read ... >bleepingcomputer.com > (next word will be the) forum (or "sub-section") you are in> (then individual pages) > etc.

Like this:

(arrow) bleepingcomputer.com>General Topics>Introductions>"I'm new at this"

Instead of using the "back arrow" of your browser, just click on those words, to navigate backwards.

With a little practice you can go anywhere.

Now, to post you had to have used the "new post" button and the message box.

If you're normal, you might have a difficult time duplicating that first success.

Well, you can start a new topic or find the radio-control button that says "reply to post" instead.

If you "chicken out" with that message, just go back a page, and start again.

There is no substitution for time spent experimenting.

So, take your time.

We'll try to help.

Each forum has pinned topics at the top of the main listing.
A good place to start is read pinned topics in each. :thumbsup:


bleepingcomputer.com = home
bleepingcomputer.com/forums/index.php?act=post&do=reply_post&f=64&t=39701 happens to be what is listed as the http:// address for this reply to your (?)

meaning you can also look there, in the address bar of your browser, to see where you are at.

I know thats not all there is to getting around, but at least you can think "I'm not lost!" :flowers:
