3. This one is important! If you have a question you wish to ask in the forums, please first check whether your question has already been answered. You can use the Search facility to do this. You may also find our AV FAQ may answer your question, and we encourage people to search this first.
Although that said, people are always willing to help and offer advice. And if everybody used the search function as strictly as requested in the forum rules there would be little chit chat and mickey taking.
