Microsoft is still blocking this page. I cleared my cache history and am still being blocked. Today I opted to "proceed anyway." Sure hope that wasn't a mistake.

Is that Microsoft Security Essentials that is generating the block?

No, it says "Microsoft Smart Screen." There is an option to report the site as safe, which I already did, a few days ago.

Thanks for the help, by the way, Kelley!  :)

I tried accessing the forum on my work computer using Internet Explorer and Edge with Smart Screen enabled and I had no problem. It could just be some kind of setting on your machine. I feel quite confident that the site is safe. This might be why I read that some people find Smart Screen annoying. LOL

Thanks again, Kelley; I'll have to double check my security settings. They're set pretty high because I have to do a lot of online searching for the work I do, so I have some pretty high security settings. When I get a minute I'll take more time to figure it out. McAfee is no longer flagging the site, so I figure (hope) I'm safe!
