    Hi,

    How do you send another forum member a Private Message? I checked their profile, but was unable to find an option to send them a PM.
    Apologies if I missed this in the Forum Guidelines.

    Thanks.

    Members who have not made a certain number of posts don't have the option to send private messages (now known as Personal Conversations) to other members in order to prevent spamming.

    Generally speaking, it shouldn't be necessary for a new member to contact someone else privately. If they need help with something they should start a thread on the boards for personal assistance.

    @Cookiegal I was going to send you a PM regarding helping in the malware removal section. (Not regarding malware removal help, but about becoming a Malware Specialist) If there is a forum section appropriate for this, I can post it there.

    Thanks.

    Ironic it was me you wished to contact, isn't it? :D

    Please consult the information at the bottom of the Help page regarding Account FAQs at the following link:

    https://forums.techguy.org/help/accounts/

    There you will find information about enrolling in one of the malware removal universities. Unfortunately, we don't have training facilities here but we do have agreements with those sites to have their students work here while in training.

    You can still contact me if you wish but I believe you have to make one more post before you will be able to do that.

    In that case please provide a link to your profile at Bleeping Computer so I can verify your status there and if everything is in order you will then qualify to be a Malware Specialist here and we'd be glad to have the help.

    Congratulations! You now have the title of Malware Specialist and also have access to the Private forum, the Golden Dungeon. There are a lot of users needing help with malware removal so I hope you can pitch in there. :)
