Hello Brendan,

You could add it like this below:

System Restore


{URL="link address"]Text to display[/URL}


Code:
{URL="http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/700-system-restore.html"]System Restore[/URL}
I've updated your signature with this, but you can still change the text to what you like.

Thanks again Shawn just seems to be not working for me. Here is how i did it.
URL="Repair Install Install[/URL

Tried a few other ways also. Like adding in "{URL="...."without "{URL="....."
Could you post the exact way you would type it in without any " or brackets and so fort please.

EDIT: Worked there

Try this
[url="address"]Here[/url]
With the address between the quote marks and change Here to whatever you wanted to say.
