The help provided on this forum is intended for individuals and not for business users. Most companies have their own dedicated IT departments and you may be breaking company policy by using outside help. Similar to most forums, we aim to provide free help for the individual user - not support businesses. Business/corporate users will therefore not receive assistance. The same will apply to computer repair businesses. The final decision as to whether or not any individual receives help here rests with the Administrators.
Please post in the relevant forum - read the forum descriptions and rules before posting.
When asking for help - start a new thread/topic. Do not "hijack" other threads saying "I have the same problem".
We do not offer help per PM, IM or Email. All technical support should take place in the threads, so that all members have a chance to participate and also benefit from the answers given.
Post in a way which is consistent with "normal writing".
Users should not post excessive numbers of emoticons, large, small, bold or coloured text, etc.
Avoid chat abbreviations, and do not SHOUT or use excessive punctuation (e.g. ! and ?) in topic titles or posts.
Please try to use an appropriate, descriptive title when posting a new topic.
Examples of bad titles include "Help me!", "I am stuck!", "I have got an error!".
Examples of good titles include; "Getting a TABLE FULL error upon login", "Cannot restore a backup", etc.
Do not "bump" threads until at least 3 days have elapsed since the last reply.
