Just because I post very occasionally and even more rarely give the correct answer I am by no means an expert on anything other than Oracle FA. In the last few weeks I've had a lot of emails relating to various PC problems (perhaps it's my fault also by replying directly rather than posting to the thread but I don't want to seem unhelpful and try to help whenever I can).
I'm quite willing to answer these questions and one in particular (S you know who you are) especially so. But you should realise that I rely on either my own limited PC experience or 'skill', if you can call it that, at Googling. I'm prepared to help but as I tell you in my replies you should not rely on the single, defective brain cell of an elf to help you fix your problem.
There are thousands of people here who can probably help with your problem and you shouldn't be shy or embarrassed to post more information if it's asked for.
I'm flattered that you ask me directly but would prefer it if you would post to your thread.
I was just trying to make the point that you get a better response if you reply to the thread and not be shy or embarassed about doing it. Of course I will always try to help and this is not meant to be a rant by any means.
that people post in the threads, rather than email individual forum members direct. It's the way the forum was designed to work, and unless it happens the other forum members will not be able to follow a problem through to resolution.
So - please don't email individuals about your problem, post here in the forum - no matter how elementary you may feel your particular problem is.
