    That's a very good feature to have, you can turn it off in your browser setting. Or if it's yahoo safe search you can turn it off through yahoo. But don't do it. It's a good add security feature. One mistake some users make is to go to bad web sites that infect your computer through security Vulnerabilities. This will allow the malware to get past your anti-virus and infect your computer.

    It is likely that the provider for the site has realized that it has been hacked. DO NOT click continue or anything, or it will likely ruin your computer. Basically the site will either be shut down, or it will be recovered later.

    Also (random security tip) If a website brings up a popup and asks you a question like "Would you like to win $5000 for free?" do not click ok or cancel. Click the X on the popup to avoid virus downloads.

    sorry to tell you but i think you have a Malware Virus on your system !!!!!

    so please do all this to kill it :-

    you have a really bad virus and the only thing to kill it is "Malwarebytes", some times this virus blocks anti-virus sites so download it using another system on to a Flash drive then use the flash drive to install it onto the infected system, then reboot and then run a FULL scan of your system, if this fails try this, reboot and press F8 as it boots up, this will take you into safe mode, then run a Full scan again.

    If it is still blocked & won’t install try this:-

    When it asks you where you would like to save it, change the "mbam_setup.exe" file to xxxxx.exe.

    Then install it, update it, and run a full scan in Safe mode.

    This will clear your system of this virus.

    This is also one of the best free anti-spyware programs; again always run your anti-virus software in “Safe Mode” on full scan.

    This will all help you and are completely FREE downloads.

    Trust me this does work.


    Simple version of what to do:-

    Download “Malwarebytes” onto a UBS Memory stick using a friends system

    Use the Filehippo links as these are completely FREE

    Reboot your system

    As it boots up press (tap) F8

    When in SAFE MODE install “Malwarebytes” using your USB Stick copy

    When installed, run a full scan of your HDD

    Reboot back into main windows again

    Update “Malwarebytes” using the update tab page

    Run another full scan of your HDD

    Trust me this will not harm your system at all, only kill any bad stuff that's on it.

    This is completely FREE and easy to do and WORKS, so why not try this first??

    i would heed that advice. i have Norton anti virus and it does that it stops you form visiting the page, because there is a known threat, be it a virus or malware of phising. and its trying to protect your computer

    try those 2 loose courses, ccleaner, cleans all temp information/folders, cookies etc. Lavasoft adaware/undercover agent ware remover, acquire, replace, run complete test. different determination is to envision the two information superhighway settings and browser settings.
