Can anyone help me I know this isn’t strictly woodworking but I am unable to reply to posting messages from my email by clicking on the link also when I’m on the site I can’t click on “My Lumberjocks to open I have to right click & then click on open,whereas before I simply left clicked & there it was. When in email I click on the lumberjocks link & get a message saying “This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer, please contact your administrator” Who’s that?? It’s really frustrating because I can’t make a comment without going to Lumberjocks & trawling through the projects/blogs/forums to find the message. Maybe it’s a sign & I should just shut up? If any one can tell me how to restore the hyperlink facility I’d appreciate it. I have defragmented my disc,I’m using Microsoft security essentials to run scans & I ran a CCleaner to clean it all up

Trevor, I know how frustrating computers and for that matter cell phones can be. I recently had an issue with a brand new computer. I just acted funny and wouldn’t do certain operations. It turned out I had a virus, even though I had done everything right as far as the ancillary programs and something got corrupted. This required that the hard drive be wiped out and the computer reformatted. Will I never learn to back up my computer? I lost lots of photos and documents. Good luck but please keep posting. I enjoy them a lot.

Trevor, this definitely sounds like the problem is on your end and not with the LJ website.

Is this your home computer or a workplace computer? You say the the “My Lumberjocks” link does not work… do other links on the site?

Unless you are on an administrated network where some restrictions have been imposed, I’m afraid it sounds like a virus.

I’m an IT nerd by trait couple of questions for you to see if I can help you out. To answer one question off the top the Administrator is your IT department on your home computer that’s you… stupid I know but that is how Microsoft is set up. The good news is this sounds like it’s a permissions issue not anything defrag or ccleaner would fix. couple questions for you and feel and feel free to private message me back to follow up. What web browser are you using? Like internet explore, firefox, google chrome etc.. (by the way all Firefox and Google Chrome are so so much better than Internet Explorer, IMO). Next what is your email? Do you have it set up through MS outlook or are you using a web based one like gmail, yahoo etc?
I’ll try to get you fixed up but no promises and it might take a little time cuss I’m not right there, I’m not a great tech over the phone, very hands on tech. Which might be why I like wood working you see everything right there.

And the first couple dumb and obvious things to try are to close out, and reopen your browser, and then totally shut down (including power off) and restart your computer.

It’s amazing how many things this can fix.

But … yeah … I’m no fan of Internet Explorer, either.

Well I’m back guys I muddled through it always works when you take a length of 4×2 & threaten it. I started it up in safe mode dumped some temporary files & something called Blinx (don’t know how that got there??)
& restarted ran a scan & clean & we’re all good it’s speeded everything up too. (wish I was really as clever as I sound )
Thanks for the support looks like you’ll have to put up with me a little longer
Best to you all

Trevor, try clearing out your temporary internet files. Sometimes this happens to me when I’m surfing ebay. The computer just stores too many files, and they need to be deleted.
