I've been experimenting with the video downloader, it works on many videos but not on others. Is this a codec/format thing?

Can SafeZone alter DNS settings? I have been unable to access Wilders Security Forums from any computer.

I can not access it either and I do not have Safe Zone installed.

Just tried - no problem accessing it here.  I'm running Avast Free and have uninstalled Safezone this morning.
Windows 10 (64bit); 8GB RAM; Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro; avast Free (latest version)

Nothing to do with avast. The site is down. At least it is from my location.

OK, thanks everyone. Some Is it Up? type sites say it's up and some don't. It's really weird.

Hi guys :)

Although I like that SafeZone browser is now available with Avast Free as well, I agree with the users who complain that is was installed withought their approval.
This is simply not how an AV-company should act.

It's up now for me. Apparently Digital Ocean's DNS servers were having issues.

Well, I uninstalled it just to see how easy it was to do, intending to reinstall, as sometimes this is needed with browsers occasionally especially on Windows, and now I can't reinstall as it isn't in the choices check list.  :o

I just tried logging in via the new desktop login. I could not due to the same problem I am having with Google Chrome.  >:(
I copied and pasted the URL and registered with AVAST using another browser. If you will send me a  send me a "Support" email I will include a screenshot of this error. Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forum. :)
Most likely a server problem:

This usually clears up in a few hrs.
If you need more help, please start your own topic. It's not related to SafeBrowser.
