Steve, you need to tell him that all HJT boards are swomped, not just Dell.
The main problem for some fighters is Dell does not have active Mods to police the forum. The number of pinned topics with replies, the number of HJT in other peoples topics and the number of HJT topics in the virus board, and that is not counting the outsiders who then post to 'help' victims.
They are all MOD problems, that the fighters are trying to work with, in a losing battle.
I know I have been there like most fighters who post to the board have.
It needs the current experts with mod powers that can pin/lock/split/move topics in those two boards.
That cannot happen at Dell, because those powers will only be given to employees of Dell.
I wish it could be different. I would love an active Dell forum doing HJT - it helps the whole anti-malware community to have such a high profile site doing HJT cleaning.
Remember it was myself as the first fighter posting to Dell that effectively got HJT posting to Dell started, with lots of others also following. Texruss, Mike, Yourself, and the current ones.
All have seen those problems, and they will not go away, whatever we try.
