    How do I reply to a thread? I saw a thread and wanted to help the person, but it says "
    (You have insufficient privileges to reply here.)". I have a free account. It says you can do basic stuff like make a post, reply, or make a thread. Am I missing something? I have only had this account for around 1-2 hours.

    Howdy and welcome. I'm guessing it was in the malware forum? You need to be properly qualified to reply in that forum; only members that have completed Malware Training are allowed to answer those threads.

    Oh, yes it is in the Malware forum, thank you for the reply. How do you go through malware training? And is it members only(Paid Registration)?

    Hello and welcome to TSG. There is no such thing as paid registration here. Membership if free for everyone.

    As far as malware removal training goes, please refer to the paragraph entitled "Become Authorized for Malware Removal" in the "Account FAQs" section of the Help pages:
