    You have to go into advanced posting mode and click on the paper clip (1st Line 3rd Button) then use the pop up to attach images.

    Hi boohbah I see from your screen shot that you have Avast running so Avast free and Pro should work in Windows 8 RTM ?

    Avast free works, did not try pro.
    Microsoft Security essentials works when you install it in Windows 7 mode.
    Both will work together (I am running both).
