    So far, you haven't really participated at all in this forum. You posted one question a couple of years ago. It had one reply that you did not acknowledge.

    You then recently posted one complaint under the guise of a support question.

    Then you posted a complaint about how inconvenient it was for you to change your password once in two years.

    I wish you would participate in the forum, and contribute something positive to enrich it.There are only a handful of active members who answer all of the questions from new members.

    Start by filling in your program version number and Operating System in your User Profile.

    As I recall the measures were introduced following a Denial of service attack which followed after a series of Spam attacks on members of the forum.

    Why anyone should mount a Denial of service attack on the Irfanview forum is a mystery to me but there do seem to be some wierdos out there.
