    Due to recent changes where only authorized members are permitted to assist in the Security forum (now called Virus & Other Malware Removal forum) and the ever increasing demand for assistance with general security questions that could be handled by the general membership, we've created this new forum.

    If you suspect (or know) you are infected, please post in the Virus & Other Malware Removal forum for assistance and include the logs in the instructions at the following link as well:

    http://forums.techguy.org/virus-other-malware-removal/943214-please-read-before-posting-help.html

    Here you can post general questions about anti-virus/anti-spyware programs, firewalls, popup blockers, etc. or any other security related questions.

    Enjoy the new forum. :)

    Edited to add:

    Please note that this category is not exempt from the rules with regards to being authorized for malware removal. If you see posts about malware problems, please do NOT ask the victims to run scans or do anything as this can interfere with the cleanup process. These threads should be reported so they can be moved to the correct forum for handling by authorized helpers.

    Quote from the rules:

    Log Analysis/Malware Removal - In order to ensure that advice given to users is consistent and of the highest quality, those who wish to assist with security related matters must first graduate from one of the malware boot camp training universities or be approved by the administration as already being qualified. Those authorized to help with malware issues have a gold shield next to their name and authorized malware removal trainees have a blue shield next to their names. Anyone wishing to participate in a training program should contact a Moderator for more information.

    Note I'ved edited the above with more details in an effort to get people who are dealing with malware to post in the correct forum (Virus & Other Malware Removal forum).
