    Hi, everyone.

    I have a little problem. The system always gives the error message as follows: "The username you tried to register already exists." HiSpeedV is my registered user name.

    If I use any other name beside the user name, I will be guest, but if I use my user name in the Name field, the system will not allow me to do that. What should I do? Please, help.

    Best regards.

    Hi HiSpeedV,

    Well you are posting as a Guest, that's why there is a place to fill-in a username on each post. You need to fully log into the forum so that you aren't a quest anymore. (Be sure you use the "login" button not the "register" button, but follow the "cleanup" below first!!)

    The best way to do this is to: close all browser windows; empty the browser cache; delete any/all cookies related to "wilderssecurity"...

    Now, if you have any web filtering or cookie management tools, proxy software or a firewall that controls "trusting" a website, you must ensure that you allow cookies from and (they are technically different). Also, this forum uses active scripting (javascript) so that needs to be enabled. (If you are using Internet Explorer, it's best to just add this site into the trusted sites list.)

    Then, open a new browser session and navigate to the main page:

    Use the Login button at top of page or the quick login at bottom right-side of page (I prefer this one). Enter your username and password (correctly) and choose "forever" for login time. You should be able to log on. From then on you are in so no need to specify a username on every post.
