    Guys I still can not read of any of the posts to my original post.

    I can open the Marshall forum. I can see all the forums and threads.

    I can't open any threads without getting a white screen with the error message.

    I can create a thread. It's all strange. I tried logging on and off. I don't have any virus
    issues with my computer.

    If anyone can help my e-mail is ****@*******.*** I don't know what else to do.

    What browser and OS are you using?

    There were many questions asked in the previous thread, but you never answered...

    He does say that he cannot read his own thread, so therefore he cannot answer any questions. That is probably why he has risked posting his own email address, to get some feedback he can read.

    Looking at his posting history he seems legit. But he also may have been hacked. I would not trust that email address.

    Catch 22.

    But can he read the posts in this thread?

    Seeing how NO other member has posted about any other problems (other than possibly some spam or such) I cannot see hot it could possibly be a forum issue.

    It HAS to be related to his ISP, browser or OS. And you are correct, he has probably been hacked or has some sort of malware or virus. Many times unscrupulous sites modify your search or lookup functions and can result in this type of behavior. Seems strange tho that he can create a thread but not view it...

    Ok I'm in.

    It has to be my desktop computer.

    I'm on my phone now. I'm going to contact tech support to get my PC back on track.

    Try using system restore.
    This knocks the hard drive back to a previous date, before the issue started.
    What OS are you using?

    "I use Windows 10. Browser is Google. Yes I disabled ad blockers.
    I don't think it's an anti virus issue as nothing had changed. I have not had an issue on
    the forum in all the years I have been a member.
    This issue just started about a week ago.
    I can't see your questions. I can't answer. "

    It may be the security features of windows 10 blocking access. The forum is not fully compliant to "some" widely accepted security standards.
    You may need to add "MAF" to the list of trusted sites etc... sorry.

    This was an issue with Google?
    Can you tell us what issue that was and how you fixed it?

    I don't use Chrome it causes too many problems on my system...

    Ok so I will be using my phone for the forum for a while.

    No issues with my phone

    We thought it was fixed. But I was not logged on to the forum.


    So this is what is happening with my PC

    The error message I get is a full white screen that says an unexpected error has occurred check back later.

    It does this with Google,Firefox and IE.

    But only when I am logged in. There are a few functions I can do like I explained

    So when not logged in i can do everything you can do that you don't need to be logged in for.

    My PC is fine. I have a Dell Tech service and they did everything they could

    They could see what was happening.

    The issue is with the Marshall forum.

    I belong to forums that use the same software and there are not any issues.

    I want thank everyone for the suggestions.

    For now I'm happy to be able to use my phone.
