Registration is free and only takes a moment to complete. To be able to use all the features on this board, including starting new topics, you must first register a username and password.
  • Click on the Register link, or click here.

  • Tick the checkbox agreeing to the terms and conditions, and then click the Register button.

  • Complete the Registration Form:
  • Login name: The name you will enter to login to your account. NOTE: DO NOT use your email address as it will be a target for spammers.
  • Display name: The name that will be displayed in the forums. (family friendly names only)
  • Password: Enter your password, and enter again to confirm.
  • Email Address: It's important you use a valid email address as that's where you'll be notified when there are replies to your posts. We will not sell or send any unsolicited emails to your email account (spam).
  • Operating System: This is important for many of the questions we receive, so it's a mandatory field. Answer to the best of your ability. Common operating systems include Windows XP (Home and Pro), Windows Vista, Apple OSX, Linux, etc.
  • Security Code: Sorry, we have to make sure you're human. Enter the six digit code you see into the box.
    The following information is optional, but helpful:
  • Receiving Email: We recommend you receive email from administrators as they may contain important information. We will not spam you.
  • Time Zone: Set your time zone so that the time displayed on the forums and topics reply notification emails are correct.
  • System: List the specifications for your system. This would include details like CPU (speed, type), RAM (type, amount), Video card, etc. If you don't know this information that's okay, we can get it later if we need it. However, it's helpful to provide if you have it. Everest is a free tool that's useful for identifying this information.
  • Country: We're a global site, and letting us know your country of origin may affect the advice we offer, and your time zone may affect who replies.

I saw something about my nickname needing confirming or something to that effect. I typed in some more info and got an email that says type "/msg NickServ confirm and a code into your IRC client to complete registration. What is an IRC client and what does the ("/msg NickServ confirm) before the code mean?

Even though I'm registered, how come I can't reply to certain posts?

Hi Forerunner343 :)

Some sections are restricted to certain members only (who are in a special group). The Virus, Spyware, Malware Removal, Computer Won't Boot - Malware Related and Can't Run Any Antivirus or Malware Removal Programs are examples of section you can't post in. Only "Trusted Helpers" (malware removal team), Experts, Global Moderators, Moderators, etc. can post in it. This is to control the assistance that is given and ensure that only trained members give malware removal assistance to others since it's a delicate domain.
