Possible "Forum" problem ?

MODERATORS:  This may not be the correct forum for this problem.  Please relocate this if necessary.

This morning, while submitting a reply to a problem, I received the message "Unexpected Error", and my reply seemed lost.  A message was received that a "recovery" version was available, but that turned out to be empty.  This problem has occurred before today, and for some of my longer-winded replies, I keep a back up (JIC ).

Today, however, my reply could not be recovered, but, more troubling, the original posting, by (if I remember aright) "Joan Oliviera" (with a tilde over the a) has disappeared.  I truly hope that I have not caused that message to vanish.

The original posting had to do with a "Trojan SPM/LX", and multiple pop-ups.  It sounded like one of the rogue "AntiVirus" hoaxes that have become so prevalent of late.

After a small search I found that thread you mentioned about. Its not deleted, rather moved to the appropriate community by a moderator.

Anyhow thanks for your involved activity.

Thanks!  I though the posting was lost.  I located the OP, and responded.

IMHO, the original posting should be up front in the "Home and Home Office" fora, as the Original Post indicated a problem with a home PC, and the problem might not get the visibility in the relocated forum.

That being said, it is your forum.

McAfee has been experiencing occasional glitches with the forum database which might explain a few things.   Do you need this aforesaid thread moving?  If so I need the URL.
