What a boring (and slow) experience it must be! Remove all those stupid anti viruses and use Malwarebytes.

Whats the warning exactly? Maybe you have some "parental control" or something similar to prevent any "adult" oriented content to be loaded. See: http://download.mcafee.com/products/web ... 2B36C.html

It's there on top of this page right now as I write:

"We tested this page and blocked content that comes from potentially dangerous or suspicious sites. Allow this content only if your're sure it comes from safe sites. View all blocked content. X."

I have to keep clicking on "X" to remove it. It reappears when I go from page to page. I would leave it alone but it blocks the top of the page with my log-in status and so I need to click it every time I log in or out.

I had set-up parental controls years ago (age up to 15) on our broadband - but this has only been happening the last few months.

I bet you use McAfee because it sounds Scottish.

Seems to have spread to CY Mail when accessed through CF.

I am surprised the forum doesn't come up with that warning, it is pretty malicious most of the time!
