I have "Sixteen Tons" of questions & problems.

Let me start with this one:

Oh, I forgot I am supposed to start with this information:

Betty Spence and I am using Dell XP (2000 I think)

I keep getting a popup that says:
Type: Application
From: c:/Docume1/Roger/Localsl/Temp/IMIstalle....
Two little boxes : one says Run and the other Cancel
Another message: Can potentially harm your computer.

I click Cancel but it just keeps coming back.

How can I get rid of this??

Your msg is posted in the Practice Posts so most people would not bother to see it. If this really is a question, I suggest you repost it in the General folder so someone will take it seriously.

Thanks, Charles for your reply to my last message.

How do I get my message out of Practice and into "General" as you suggest???

Betty, This is what I would do. Go to forum in this case I'd click on GENERAL just above Swap Meet. Page comes up, click New Topic in top heading by the little purple envelope. Fill out form like you did with the Practice forum. Click post.

Hopes this helps.

Hi Betty,
Rapunzel's instructions are correct. After you log in, instead of clicking on "Practice", scroll down and click on "General".

Post your question as you did before.

Then, delete the post in the "Practice" forum by clicking "All ICON Forums" at the upper left (directly under the logo).

Next, click on "Practice Posts" as you did originally, then click on your original post.

After your post opens, at the top of the box, click the trash can icon (6th from the left).

That's all there is to it.

Don't hesitate to ask for help if you get hung up. That's why ICON exists.

Happy Computing
