OverStocked 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.

chuukus I visit rootmedic website almost everyday to see what new products he has come up with and have never had a problem.

Robert H Wow...I would dump this trend micro in a heartbeat. what a lot of hassle

OverStocked 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.

Seattle_Aquarist Banner link works fine, signature link still does not.

OverStocked I'm willing to be you found the problem right there...

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.

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

Seattle_Aquarist 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.
Rating: Dangerous

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.

Note: If you still want to visit this site despite the risk, clickhere to open it.

Thank you for your submission

OverStocked 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.

Seattle_Aquarist Ok, did it.....and was directed to the website. Trendmicro must have a problem with the signature link.

Thanks for the help! Mods may delete this thread if they so choose.

OverStocked It is trend micro, not firefox. That being said, click the link in the banner at the top of the page and tell me if it does it. Then just type the address in and tell me.

Seattle_Aquarist I am not a computer whiz, but my guess would be that it is the re-directing that Firefox is having trouble with.

There are probably more qualified TPT members that would understand this better than me.

OverStocked In about 2 friggin weeks Norton will have checked my site...
