Unable to post on help & support section

Hi, im not banned i checked and whenever i go into the help and support section of gmod i am logged out, it doesnt tell me this but the logged in as blah blah thingy is gone, and if i try to re-login, it redirects me back to help and support, but im STILL not logged in. so uh, wtf?
also ON ALL of my steam games whenever i go into internet servers, it just says refreshing servers forever and yes my virus protection has hl2.exe on a trusted so it should work.

Sounds like a virus to me. Does it only do this for the Help & Support section?

yes, but ONLY for one specific thread


and its the thread where no one can get steam game servers to show up.
