Q: People are complaining that I am spamming a chat channel when I am doing nothing. How do I stop it?
There are a number of third party programs and viruses that can cause people to get muted. If people are complaining
that you are spamming in a chat channel, but you are not, it is possible that you might have been infected. Please uninstall
any third party add-on programs you might have installed, and run a full virus scan to check for viruses. Further
information on protecting your computer from viruses, can be found on our
computer security page.
