Hi

 

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/

 

The tutorial is excellent, but may need to updated. Either it no longer precisely matches, or they are not showing up correctly in my Safari browser.

 

When I posted, there was only a Topic title field and a message body field, not a title description field. I also didn't see the text to "paste your log into this section".

 

This left me wondering if I should post a more detailed description in the body before the log, or cram it all into the title? I opted for "cram into title".

 

And of course, the discrepancies left me afraid that I was clueless and doing it wrong, which has been known to happen. :P

 

Regardless, thanks for this awesome site.

Atari, you might want to check your browser - I am using Google Chrome on Windows and everything displays normally.

Actually, the topic description field no longer exists.  When the forum software was upgraded, that meant all topics posted prior to that time lost all their topic descriptions which has at times caused some problems when searching for something.  I'd keep the topic title brief but descriptive, but include the longer description in the topic.  The title field can only hold so much.

 

Thanks for pointing out the outdated information in the guide.
