      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Computer Warning from the Security Center

Recommended Posts

Not sure if anyone can help but I thought I would give it a shot. About a week ago I got this warning from the Security center, I assume form the control panel on my computer stating that my firewall wall has block this worm virus, WIN32, NetSky.q so the options are to down load this program which turns out to be noting because the warning keeps coming back about every 5-10 min or order a 1 year protection pan and I was wondering if anyone ever ran into this? I have been just clicking on the X and goes away but, I would like to get rid of it all together. I could have a tech look it over but, its a 4 year old emachine that was worth, around $300.00, hardly worth it. Any ideas would be super.

Thanks

Ken

It is spyware/trojan/virus and a nasty one ------they have really stepped up their game lately---try Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware---it worked for me. It is free and highly recommended.

Virus for sure. You can try AVG anti virus. It's free and a really good program. If nothing else you can reimage the machine if you have the disks that came with it, just back your system up first. I don't mess around to long before I redo my system. Just quicker for me.

I second this advice. I also run HijackThis, Adaware, and Spybot regularly to clear threats and keep everything running smoothly. You have a Netsky virus, if you are still able to use the computer it should be fairly easy to get rid of.

You can also clean it best you can and then try creating a new profile, that has worked for me in the past. If you have a pretty simple setup, not too much extra stuff on your PC a fresh install would be the best. Just depends on how long it would take to get things back up and running as to how much time spend fixing the Malware.

Ok, went and goggled all these sites and when I do, Fire Fox won't connect but it will for any other site like this site, Craigs list, etc. Plus, last night when I was able to google it, using Fire Fox, it would take me to a listing and says free but then it talks about contract for a year. I'm not the smartest in terms of computers but I thought all I would have to do is go www. AVG.com and it would tell me to download this or any of the other sites but I was wrong.

I had AVG and now have avast because it has a smaller foot print on your software. The problem I am having is that I still have viruses showing up every 5 min or so. I have brought it in twice in last two weeks to have the viruses cleared off and they said it was good to go. Do you guys think that if I bought a virsu protection that it would remove the viruses I do have. I also have the Security Center alert but I don't have the back up cd for the software.

You really need an Anti Virus package if you are on the web!!! Surfing unprotected is not a good idea at all. AVG is free, just make sure you select the free option. And yes it can remove most if not all viruses already on your PC. Some Malware stuff it a bit more difficult and there is a difference. You can also try creating a new profile in XP as some malware only mucks up the current profile.
