Still can't get on cable forum !

Don't normally use pc to get on this forum, simply not in room I use for this sort of thing . Given that when I had Kaspersky it blocked it l simply stopped trying. Now have bit defender and it also blocks it !!! Got granddaughter to try ,she has Kaspersky still and she was stopped as well. What's puzzling is that , when using Android or color l have no problems. Could be something set in Windows that they don't like ? The block says data leak or words to that effect

Whitelist the site, or better still just turn them off, they are a waste of time.

Not bothered , the stats both put up just be made up ,given the numbers they claim to block ? . My "granddaughter " that set my and granddaughters Windows based m/c thinks that the way she set them up finds the protection here is old/weak by today's standards but as you hold nothing I care about . . She didn't do the tablet or smartphone which both have no problems . As I always say " just because you are paranoid it don't mean they are not after you " wouldn't even have thought about it if l hadn't tried from pc . Hay ho

Re: Still can't get on cable forum !

Have you tried accessing it with Bit Defenders shields down? just to test? When you uninstalled Kaspersky did you check if the site loaded without it? Might not be the AV fault at all seeing as others can access the site with the same AV as you. Do you not find that strange?

My teccy "granddaughter" is convinced the problem ? Is her settings , very very strict on both the PC's and what she thinks is " old" software on cable forums site . She said and I quote "if I have couple of hours to spare I'll hack it to have a look" l said don't bother l am not concerned just curious .
