no need to delete. Never scared of a little discussion! This will be a great place to direct someone if it seems to happen again.

Over_Stocked,

This is what I get when I click on your signature; I sent a request for the site to be reviewed by TrendMicro:



Website blocked by Trend Micro Internet Security


Opening this website may put your security at risk
Trend Micro has not yet evaluated this website

The website you wanted to see might transmit malicious software to your computer, or has done that before to someone else. It may also show signs of involvement in online scams or fraud.

Because you have set your Protection Against Web Threats to "High," all websites not yet checked by Trend Micro have been blocked for your protection.

What you can do:
Try visiting another site to find the information you want.

Notify Trend Micro to review this page if you consider it safe.
If you still want to see this blocked page:


1. Open the Trend Micro Internet Security console.
2. Click Internet & Email Controls.
3. Click the Settings... button under Protection Against Web Threats.
4. Click the Approved websites link in the next window that opens.
5. Copy and paste the address of the blocked website into the list.

1, it likely hasn't been checked. 2, the double redirect. Try the link now.

Banner link works fine, signature link still does not.

That is odd, as the link in the banner is the same. Now the link in the sig is different. Try clearing your cookies, etc and do it again.

It should never do this again, unless there is a problem with your browser... It should show up as trusted from trend micro, norton, etc. I submitted it and have not heard of any other problems.

That being said, Trend Micro is a subpar security program. I'd trust some free ones over it.
