I just got a Vista laptop and when ever I try to login to the forum it dosen't completely do it. By "not completely" I mean it shows at the bottom that I am currently online, but the top still says "welcome guest" and when I try to post it acts like I am not longed it. If I use my XP computer it works fine. I am using Internet Explorer.
You're the first as far as I know. Hmmm... What happens if you login and directly refresh the page? Do you keep being listed as an active user? If so, this might be a problem that needs a little digging into!

Well I logged in and hit the fresh button and I was still on the active users list. But I didn't know how long it keeps you as an active user after your last click. I let the page sit there for 10-15 min and refresh it; I was no longer on the active user list.
The minimal "stay logged in for" time is 15 minutes. The default is 6 hours. Can you do another little test? Log in, wait 5 minutes and hit refresh. Then post a message (as a guest) telling me whether you're still in the active user list or not. That way I can also see the time you were trying to log in plus whether or not your IP address is being registered properly.
