First, you recruited one of the best as moderator! Second, it'll be nice to have the infected stuff in one place. This is a good idea, but will take a bit of getting used to for posters who come here through Google, and lilhurricane See Profile and Wildcatboy See Profile may be quite busy moving topics.

I recommend putting the tab for the new forum where it will be sure to be seen on the security main page. Right now it doesn't show there for me. I have to click the ">>" tab to find it.

Since Malware archive is a limited interest/access forum, it could be moved to the end. Kerio-Tiny, being a specialty forum that's been around long enough for people to know it's there, could also be moved to the right.

HTH and thanks!

Fantastic news, super moderess for the forum, and it's about time...all in one breath! This separate forum was needed a long time ago, and I can't think of a better person to help take care of it than our little Florida bombshell with her back covered by CJ. What a combo that is!

Golllee! Lisa, what next?. With the Software forum now Security Cleanup, you're a real terror for work.

Well done and warmest congratulations.

In my opinion a special forum for the cleanup of malware infections was long overdue.

She is taking over!

Great idea.

Now, perhaps the security-related forums should be gathered into it's own category, sortof like the setup now with the Verizon and SBC forums.

Yes?
No?
Maybe so?

Sorry I wasn't here yesterday to help you move, lilhurricane See Profile. Obviously you are an excellent choice for the new forum. How can you not be? I was one of the people who nominated you.:) and I always make excellent choices.

Good luck with the new forum.

Thanks all for the good wishes...

I believe this will serve us all well, both here in Security's main "home" forum, and to those requiring additional help in Security Cleanup.

We have high goals of providing assistance, while teaching, learning...within the same structure of requirements as you are all familiar with already.

Thanks to Wildcatboy See Profile for the vote of confidence & thank you CalamityJane See Profile for lookin' out

...and to kudos to each & every one of you who participate and contribute here every day.

You guys are the "heartbeat" of Security...and the beat goes on....

Re: New Forum: "Security Cleanup"...

We have needed a separate "Security Cleanup" forum for some time.

Glad to see that it's time has come and even happier to see that lilhurricane will serve as moderator.

Looks like a win, win situation for us all.

You may view helping infected users as wasted space, we view it as an opportunity to help, educate and promote PC security

Ummm...that was not my implication...there is a place to help people and should be a separate forum...the Security forum has been cluttered with Hijackthis topics, which needs to be in another forum, than Security forum, a Security Cleanup forum is perfect.

Please do not put words into my mouth and hands.

This is a great idea, as it seperates the posts into a more logical and organised way. It stops the security forum from being overloaded with HJT logs, and it means those who need help / want to help don't need to sift through so many posts

You can't get back from that forum to this one easily. There needs to be link at the top... not the bar which is all messed up anyhow. But above that.

Cluttered? Hate to pick on you but the average number of HJT threads per day in this forum has been 3-5. Considering the number of posters we have, 5 HJT threads a day is hardly considered a clutter.
