I need to access a site that Avast is blocking
« on: September 09, 2019, 07:14:27 PM »
I have been trying all day to get onto a site I know is safe. I have been on setting and made this site an exception, restarted my computer but it still
won't allow me into this site.

Any ideas please....I'm desperate now.

Why are Avast blocking the site I know is perfectly safe?

I'm experiencing the same thing as well, and would like to learn how people are able to censor me at the browser level from accessing comments and being able to comment on various news sites I like to visit.   

I tested this on various browsers and various locations and was able to access those sites with no issues - it's only on MY machine.  

How do I protect myself from that?
