Not being an malware / anti-virus expert, I relied on Web Shield to select my choices of settings. I turned them all on, and some of my most trusted sites (eg: Microsoft), were being flagged as false positives. Without trying to educate me about all the settings, could someone educate me on a better way to set up this protection. I just need some protection, not a college level understanding of what the options are. I'm also not interested in creating exceptions, as this is too tedious to apply to all my sites that have problems with this. Thanks in advance!!!

Terry, can you give a snapshot of your current WebShield settings so we can see?
