Windows 7: Virus On Forum, Or...?

Virus On Forum, Or...?

Hello,

I received a Google-Alert that someone on the Fprum here has answered a Query of mine.
As usual, it gives a link on to go directly to it.
Using Thunderbird.

What opens up is a graphic that says:

Wanted
Web page required
Desperately seeking PHP or HTML
Must not be missing or broken
Straight wev site (31) seeks long lost web page for good times
etc.......
Photo please
and a phone number.

I couldn't copy the graphic to paste here for some reason.

Anyone know anything about this ?

Is it something on my PC, or something on this Forum ? Or,...?

Shouldn't the MS virus program that I have apparently running caught it ?

How do I get rid of this, please (using W7 and Thunderbird) ? (and prevent it from coming back ?)

(it has been very nice just to click on these Google Alerts that come into my Thunderbird IN box tgo see what the replies are)

Thanks,
Bob

The screen you loaded is a custom 404 page not found screen - that is used on the forum.

What I would suggest happened is that someone answered your thread and then the post was deleted by either the user or the forum team.

This screen is nothing to worry about

I'd be worried far more if a Paypal box, and the word donation, popped up...

It could be worse...it could have logged you into paypal, transfered the funds under the transaction name "Donation" and gave you a thank you email
