Please use the search facility

One of the hot topics at the moment seems to be the difficulty users are having in updating AVG7. AVG are apparently working on it according to their forum.

What is astonishing is that many of these threads are almost identical in content. Obviously the search facility is not being used prior to posting. I entered AVG in the search box and received no less than 500 threads exactly - the headers of which indicated the update issues with AVG7.

Please, please - use the search facility first........

Time after time after time the identical question.

I agree wholeheartedly.

The only thing I would add is: use the search box on the left of the screen as the one at the top of the screen does not seem to work very well.

same goes for 'how do i set up a network?'

we are here to help it's voluntary many posters are new on the forum and it is not compulsory to search forst

Yeah,they should have a newbie page.

stalion, agree. It is not compulsory to do a search first and, as you say, new users wouldn't know that anyway.

This is what prompted my recent thread: click here

Do we just point them in the direction of previous threads or do we all type our responses again.

BIG Ben strikes 10 again!, no I don't think so. We were all newbies once, like we were all learner drivers once (although you are not old enough to drive yet). The more you use it the better you become.

I think just take everything as it comes. If you know there were previous answers, point it out. If you are not sure, type your response in again.

Like my partner keeps pointing out to me.
