Is this a program that you have installed C:\ProgramData\Anti-phishing Domain Advi... (presumably the last bit is Advisor) ?

Anti-phishing Domain Advisor was already on my computer when I set this computer up on June 6 of this year.

I'm surprised that I was even able to post because now it's showing login or register.  This makes no sense.






DavidR:
Try finding and disabling the Anti-phishing Domain Advisor and see if this is what is causing the problem.

Personally I don't see the need for a dedicated Anti-phishing application as the avast Network Shield malicious sites list is likely to cover phishing sites as many are likely to be malicious. Depending on your browser, it may have anti-phishing built in. You can also consider using the OpenDNS.com as your DNS server it has a dashboard function with many categories you can block at DNS server level, Phishing being one and other parental control settings, http://www.opendns.com/start/ for more info.

Why would this even be installed on my new computer if it was going to cause a problem?
