My post also did not show up correctly. I always have what I write inside a text file so in case any errors happen (or they decide to cut my connection) I still have it.
In this case I was simply able to edit the post and it then showed up correctly.

Behind 5 firewalls? You are either on a poorly designed corporate network, extremely paranoid, or lying. A router is NOT a firewall. It can perform some of the very basic functions of a firewall (block this traffic, allow that), it cannot do anything "advanced" that even CHEAP firewalls can do.
PIFTS (Product Information Framework Troubleshooter) is a diagnostic program that Symantec periodically sends out to users to anonymously collect information such as the operating system and version number of the product being used in order to get a snapshot of its user base.

Bad Symantec Update Leads to Trouble
Symantec says a buggy diagnostic program spurred a rash of Norton antivirus user complaints late Monday and Tuesday morning.
Problems started around 4:30 p.m. Pacific Time on Monday, when Norton Internet Security and Norton Antivirus 2006 and 2007 users started receiving error messages connected to a Symantec software update that tried to download a program called PIFTS.exe.
Anyway what works for me is working just fine. And has been for 10 years. Obviously I am doing something right..and everyone else is not with all this cry wolf over some file getting into their systems.
