Would it be to go to Admin CP > Manage Forums > Permissions >

Then under guests/not logged in uncheck "View Forum" .

me thinks this is what it is.

There is also something in the settings of the board which also hide these forum, not only disallow users from accessing them.

in Admin CP > Board Settings > Change > Forum Home Options > Hide Private Forums?

regards

That only hides forums that you do not have permission to (from forum permissions). If you disable their "Can View Board" permission in their usergroup they will not be able to see ANY part of the board.

So if you want to hide all forums with zaher's method, you must edit the forum permissions of each category on your forum and disable the "Can View Board" permission for the Unregistered usergroup (permissions are inherited for the forums in each category).
