It just comes up fine for me Stu, no warnings. I'm no expert on such things, but plenty on here who know what they are talking about on matters IT so they may troop along with better info. Gibbo's set up must be more belt and braces.

Thanks for the reply, Neil.
The reason behind the question is that I thought I was fairly secure, but if there is a hole I need to plug I would like to know.

It's fine here - but then I'm using Brave Browser that has Anti Tracking / Anti Ads and Anti everything built in Stu - saves loads of bandwidth and loads pages a lot faster:

Yes, Malware bytes is being a bit over-active Eric by the looks of it. Just click to continue to site. If you windows 10, Windows defender will sort out any viruses in any case.

I'd forgotten Malwarebytes was running in the background it's been a very long time since it popped up a blocker.

Mine (Firefox & Chromium) sometimes chuck up a block. Usually when the broadband drops out while attempting to open another page, it is usually spurious and works once the connection is back up.
Firefox warns of one particular site all the time. There is no malware whatsoever on it.

I do tend to be rather blasé about the warnings. Never had a virus or malware since I ditched Windows.
I have a cunning plan if it should happen. Reinstall a clean OS. Takes half an hour.

Which way did you go? To the dark walled garden of MacOS or the green open fields of Linux? Maybe something more niche such as a Chrome book or Android?
As I get older I think a lot about the hereafter - I go into a room and then wonder what I'm here after.

Linux.
Used to build my own computers and spent much time at computer fairs.
Linux often mentioned but the theme was that it was too difficult for normal mortals.

Spotted a SuSe Linux box for sale - very professional packaging, 400 page manual, seven CDs. Six months free support (never used nor needed). £24!
Bought it and tried it. It was far easier to install than Windows, less glitchy, found the modem straight away and installed it, also the other computers in the house - Ethernet linked, and could swap or use files from any of them.
It is a given that I am locked out of some stuff that Windows excels in. None of it interests me anyway - gaming and the like.
There was a bit of a learning curve but certainly no more difficult than Windows.
