@xraiderv18
Since you're the one with the problem, maybe, the smart thing to get to the bottom of this is to get you
to post what security programs you have installed.
You're having the problem most of us have no problem.

Then explain to me why I don't have that problem, as my post with images indicates - https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=284118.msg1629284#msg1629284.

Not everyone is experiencing this problem or this forum would be on fire with activity.

Ordinarily with the Web Shield if there is a link on a site leading to a 3rd party site it alerts and blocks the primary site to prevent access, but it would normally give the primary site in the alert information, which is what I can't understand.

what exactly is your security setup? I ask, as I've maintained from the beginning, that everyone's operating environment is different. I'm running a minimalistic setup(avast, malware bytes, spybot SD, zone alarm firewall) as I need a more performance oriented configuration.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say you didn't see my post on page 2...

Thanks, I see 50 replies per page.
Looking at that list, I's suspect Zone Alarm Firewall as the probable cause.

Quite likely.
From my experience, all 3 can and have caused conflict/unexpected behavior along side of Avast.

I don't have any problems on https://amazon.com or https://amazon.nl
So I don't think this is an Avast problem.

honestly...would I have bothered defending myself let alone reporting a problem here if it was THAT simple?

in any event, according to another thread, problem's been acknowledged and fixed by avast support team...so I was right, false positive.

If you insist and it makes you happy, consider the problem solved. If you still can't reach the site, consider following the suggestion of checking the probability that the problem is one of the programs you're using. Most likely Zone Alarm.

see attachment for my response.

you need not respond given your close minded thoughts on this now resolved issue.

and on that note, I'm walking away from this thread.

Resolved without any real explanation isn't a resolution to me.
