Hi and Welcome to BleepingComputer,
The reason you cannot find the edit button is you can only edit a post for 24 hours after it was made.
I see that your post is in the HijackThis section of the forum and that is the one, and only, section of this forum that it takes a very long time to get replies. That is because it is a specialized forum that only members of the HijackThis team can help in and there are a lot more people wanting help in that forum than there are helpers. It also takes having the right helper for your problem to be available.
It usually takes 10-14 days to get reply and you should not make a second post in that thread because that will make it look like you are already receiving help and cause your post to be overlooked. I think that is probably why your second post there got merged with the first, so it would not look like there was a reply to your original post. Don't worry about your post getting lost because it moves many pages down the list, it won't.
Just be patient and they will get to your post as soon as possible.
The info you are wanting to add to your post is not important enough to worry about putting in there before you get a reply to that post so do not worry about it. You can give that info to them after a helper picks up your post.
