I have been having major hardware issues on one pc but seem to have things working again. However I can't log into GZ. I get a Cloudflare error message saying I have been banned (I haven't been naughty - honest). I did try to log in several times with incorrect password before I figured out what was happening. My login is still okay on another machine, just not the one computer. Can this be reset/fixed?

Sounds like Cloudflare brute force prevention is being used on Geekzone. You'll need to wait an hour (by default) before attempting to login again.

Too many attempts will cause this. Use the other PC for a while, or go out and enjoy the real world. Try again later...
