    Question Templates - Ensure a qucik/accurate response to your query

    Ok alot of people have been asking questions without providing all needed info - so the first pages of many threads are just same old thing as people try to gather required info to assist.

    So to try andd aid this I have written up a couple of quick question templates - just copy and paste into your post and answer all the questions. That should provide people with enough info to help you with your problem.

    If other people want to contribute templates they think would be useful please do

    Do you have all critical Updates installed?

    If yes what program is it?
    Also do you keep it updated with latest definitions?
    Do you have a firewall?
    If yes what type?
    Do you have any spy/adware checking programs?
    If yes what ones?

    Val, can you make this two posts and pop the General Computer Template one into Hardware, OS or General Computer Discussions? That way I can stickie it for the appropriate one and we'll have fewer people putting tech questions into the sec sections?

    Here is some good advice for Sabrina...................

    1. Check the last post date?...........it is 2004, which means that WINDOWS XP was the hawtest number on the Planet at the time, and the last post is almost 8 years old?

    2. Learn technical English, it is the lingua franca of IT. I am afraid these translation applications just don't do the job.

    3. I know we are an "English Language" site, so if you have to use a translation engine please consider posting in your language as well. We have members from many countries and they might be able to help?

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
    What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?

    Sure can, but you may need to learn a lot first. Programing, HTML, etc., language as a example.
