    Forum log on trouble ?

    Just wondered if anyone else is having trouble getting on the forum or the web site ?

    I keep getting a message that the forum is an attack or has been attacked and my computer blocks me most of the time.
    Today it opened ok but for the last few weeks it's been a problem.

    You will probably have to clear your history, cookies, and browser as the site is clean now- your compute has some bad info stored. OM

    No, defragmenting a hard disk is different.

    Your computer keeps a record of web pages you visit. When the computer returns to a previously-visited page, some or all of the information displayed is what was downloaded and displayed before. This information is stored as history and cookies in your browser.

    You'll need to clear the cookies that your browser downloaded from the MOA webiste, as well as the browser's history. In the browser that you use, there's either a menu bar command or buttons to push in the preferences or settings screens, or some combination, to accomplish this.

    David has it about right. I understand about the computer thing and there are so many ways to do it, I'm a little leery to give you instructions without knowing your computer, browser and set-up in general.
    Perhaps you could ask around with some of the people you know and they could get you started-OR- you could Google "delete cookies on Internet Explorer" and take a peek (this is an example as you could be using IE or Firefox or Chrome.
    When you do clear things up a side benefit will be your computer will most likely run faster. Good Luck. Gary
