Don't have a problem; just rather new here...

Specs: Windows XP
Where can one read the rules of the Computing.net forums, and, how can one contact a moderator?

Also, who can request HijackThis logs?

Welcome

Look at the link below for forum rules

http://www.tomshardware.com/terms.html

As far as Hijack logs go you can Google for that term and get many hits. Also, we have a Security and Virus forum here. Do not post a log unless someone requests it.

Most individual forums have moderators. They are listed below the list of posts for each forum. For instance this forum lists:

jpishgar, Justin Weber

You can send either one a Private Message or post a message to them in the open forum.

aaflac44,

OtheHill is correct. However, to expand on what he says, anyone can request a HJT if he thinks he can analyze it. The rules about the logs are more saying posters shouldn't post a log without first being asked. There are no strict rules about helpers asking for the logs.

Thank you both for the information.

I have analyzed HJT logs in the past, and wanted o make sure I would not violate any rules if I asked someone for it.

I seem to remember that in the past HJT logs were not allowed and were referred here: http://hijackthis.de/index.php?lang... By all accounts these people are experts in deciphering them and quite candidly if they are allowed here we'll be plagued with them!

PS:An HJT log was also refused here http://www.computing.net/answers/wi... so there seems to be some anomaly in the rulings.

Ewen,

Have seen a few posters include a HJT log in their post, without any advisor in this forum asking for it, and the poster has been advised to go to the hijackthis.de link with the log, or the log has been deleted.

I agree that if HJT logs are allowed here, without an advisors request, this forum will be plagued with them. However, whoever requests a HJT log should be aware that it should only be asked for if a need is perceived, and that it is the advisor's responsibility to have experience in analyzing it.

aaflac44 and Ewen,

The rules, as I envision them, are exactly as aaflac44 has outlined.
