Web Shield blocked me from www.tenforums.com

As far as I know tenforums.com is reputable yet Web Shield 'protected' me from it.  I could not see any way of overriding Web Shield or reporting to Avast that a false positive was given.
Windows XP SP3, Avast Free 10.4.2233, Agnitum Outpost Firewall Pro 9.3, Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit, OSArmor, Comodo Memory Firewall
Windows 7 Ultimate x64, Avast Free 20.8.2429, Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit, OSArmor, EMET 5.52 (to ensure that ASLR is always ON)
Windows 8.1 Pro x64, Avast Free 8.2429, Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit, OSArmor
