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!

I'm still getting the malware warnings and have been proceeding to this site regardless because I was sure it was safe. I clicked on a link in this site a couple of days ago and one of my debit cards immediately got hacked, both domestically and internationally. A coincidence, most likely.

Is anyone else still getting these? We found out what link was causing the warning to be generated and Dmitry deleted that whole post. I haven't seen a warning since then.

Neither have I.

I'm sorry to hear what happened to you, Kathleen.  I hope this website wasn't the cause.

Woot woot! I just checked back and the malware warning is gone. I'm not likely to click on a link anytime soon, but I'm glad to be able to access the forum again!  :)

The malware warnings I was getting specifically stated that this site may contain a link that would cause my personal financial information to be hacked; that's why I was wary. Being a curmudgeon, though, I do a lot of online shopping, so who knows. Either way, I'm happy to be able to access this site again.
