Hi,

when I visit my educational website, schulbilder.org, I get a message that the site can harm you.

-----------------------
Visiting this site may harm your computer!

To keep you safe, this page was blocked by Ad-Aware 10 "Shop & Bank safely online" feature. To view this page please disable this functionality in your Ad-Aware 10 interface then try again.

-----------------------

I think this is a false positive.

Could you look into this ?

Thx
Mike

Hi Mike,

Sorry - I cant help you, I have posted along similar lines (reporting a false positive)

As the representative of a company that runs several online gaming websites, I thought maybe the nature of the websites (Gambling) had caused this blocking, but seeing your post, it seems that the Ad Aware 10 "shop and bank safely online" feature has gone haywire, blocking access to educational websites!!

I sincerely hope they are able to unblock our sites soon, I am not sure if your business is also being affected by this, like ours is.

Thanks,

Chris

Thx for the feedback.
Don't know for sure if this affects my business,but since Adaware is quite popular, I suppose it does.

I noticed it blocks another educational site too
http://app-1.coxds.com/
It's a very big advertisement network's platform.

@Huntsman:

Your question has been moved to a new topic: http://www.lavasofts...simulationscom/
It is easiest to handle the false positives if only one is reported in each topic.
