I fried motherboard on old laptop which was HP Pavillion. I had Kaspersky security on it with around 5months left until renewal time.
I bought just about the same type of laptop at Wallmarts HP Pavillion allthough this one had Windows 10, old one Windows 8.1.
Brought both to best Buy to see if they could do data transfer. BTW they were the ones that told me motherboard was fried.
Long story short they did recover most of my stuff but they also put Webroot security on new one.
I do have tech support with them because I'm PC dummy.
I joined a legit website called addictionsurvivors.org.
I posted a thread and got a reply (cool) but when I replied back to a question I was asked thats when I get the Forbidden 403 can not reply message.
This was Monday. Tried to respond to same reply Tues. saying "this is just a test and explained why" then clicked send reply and it went through.
I thought great! I'm ready to answer question now.
I answered with kind of lengthly reply and used words like Lipitor a couple times which my uncle takes for his heart.
Click send reply and get same error message.
Next day I get reply from administrator saying to try new thread maybe even breaking it up into smaller thread, I think she meant reply after reply etc...
Still no go. Keep getting error message.
Someone replies it's probably my Anti Spam Software.
They said I might be using certain words like let use Viagra for example.
They said I should write it like Vi@gr@ or something like that.
I am using Google Chrome as my default browser and was using Chrome site.
I contacted Geek Squad Tech support and told them the problem and they took control of my laptop for close to an hour and said everthings good to go.
This morning I tried to post new thread and get same error message.
Should I try calling Webroot or do you think this is a problem in the site itself? I know this is a legit site. It was given to me by a DR.
Could it have something to do with using Google Chrome as my default browser in this new Windows10?
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
Thank you.

403 IIRC is when your web browser requests a page from a website that you don't have permission to view. Usually a problem with the website though I guess antispam could cause it.

I bet both these answers are correct because forgot to mention that the replys I made that got through I noticed were dated for the previous day. I will write administrator on site and see if she has any suggestions or knows how to fix this. Thanks to all.
