Hello everyone,

A few months ago, we've added the option to show a computer icon with your posts which links to your Computer Security configuration. This should make it easier for the other members of this community to know what antivirus you're using and how you've tweaked your system. Linking your Computer Security Configuration with your account will also allow you to join our giveaways.
Here's how this icon looks (depending on the theme you're using):


To add your Computer Security Configuration to your account, and show the computer icon with your posts, you need to follow these steps:

  1. Copy the link of your thread from the browser address bar.
  2. Go to your Account Details.
  3. Paste the link of your thread in the "Computer Security Configuration" field and click Save.

    That's it. The computer icon should be visible with your posts and the other member can see how you've built up your computer defenses.
