    Hi Matt, for the last two days my phone and PC with McAfee are advising me not to visit the site.

    What's changed if anything?

    Anyone else get this?

    Not here rob. I’d say it’s your anti virus software playing up.

    I have no warnings. What is it warning you about Rob?

    Nothing has changed functionally on the site - can you PM me the error message?

    Not had anything but seem to remember a while back when I was with McAfee they flagged up something for a short while about nimbus but that was a good few years back and it seemed it was something that only happened occasionally with them

    McAfee flagged up a site i frequent as being possibly dodgy only yesterday, not this site! maybe they have updated there definitions and it's now stricter/twitchier!

    They do it from time to time just so it looks like it’s useful so you’ll keep subscribing.

    I get this on my PC, tablet and mobile. Not on any other site.

    I use McAfee because I get it with my BT Broadband. When I get the warning and decide to connect anyway very often my mobile says it won't let me for my own security.

    I realise I may be the only one but also it only does it on this site.

    What do you get Rob if you click on the 'learn more' link? it's hard to do anything about it if we don't know why they think we may contain 'viruses or other threats'.
    (having said that, my guess is that some of the spam threads we get do contain links to malware)

    It tells me I don't have permission to access their threat intelligence website on this server. 'This' ?

    How do I do a screen dump on my mobile (Samsung)?

    There appears to be a hole in the forum where quite a few posts, and occasionally a whole thread or two, have disappeared into lately. Possibly worth checking the site equivalent of the front door seal on the old washing machine. Might find a few odd socks in there...

    I think if you hold the power button you might get an option to take a pic of the screen.

    Maybe there is a lesson to be learnt there
