So I just created this account because I saw someone else had the same problem I did and I thought I'd do a good deed for the day, but when I try to reply it says I don't have permission.

Were you trying to reply in a topic in Malware Removal Logs forum?

If so, you cannot, reply to topics in that forum.

That forum is highly restricted-replies can only be made by the person who started the topic, members of the Malware Removal Team, designated Study Hall Juniors and Seniors and BC staff moderators and above.

Wee have special rules in place with regards to malware removal to ensure that members only receive help in this complex and critical area of support from those we know are well informed and trained.

At the top of the Malware Removal Logs Forum is this

Only members of the Malware Response Team or Moderators are allowed to help people with logs. Anyone else should refrain from posting to another user's log.

Before the system was changed there were good intentioned members who wanted to help and did post to log topics even though they should not have. Anytime this happened, the replies were removed from the topic.

The policy also prevents "Me to, I have the same problem" posts in MRL topics.

Well then somebody on the malware removal team tell this guy: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/590358/infection-that-prevents-me-from-running-a-variety-of-anti-malware-programs/ to run the Junkware Removal Tool. Can get it from here: http://thisisudax.org/.  Guess that policy solves one problem and creates another.

I think you might find that the helper there, olgun52 (who is a member of the Malware Response Team) will know how to handle the situation.

That policy as you say may solve one problem but create another is not quite accurate. The policy was instituted because there were far more instances of moderators having to edit and split posts all day long to maintain post continuity. It allows the moderators to moderate and not be context editors all day long. So it creates one problem which isn't really a problem if you read the pinned topic at the top of the malware logs forum. But solves a lot of problems for the moderating team. So we will take that trade off

Thank you for asking what the issue might be and allowing us to explain how our malware forum works.

When i first joined this site,because of a virus problem,I think I am glad that i got help from someone that is trained and experienced in these matters.Sometimes a well-meaning novice will try to help,but in the big picture,actually doing more damage than good! All the other forums are pretty open to opinions and comments! Thank you Guys,and Ladies,for all your help at BC!!!
