Occasionally I have had a look at the above mentioned site. (Shame on me.Sad) I have not visited the site for some months. Tonight I have tried to visit it, the page comes up, but then my security blocks talkphotography, saying "This Site is Harmful. "
Does anyone in EPZ know if they are having problems ?

Doesn't say that for me

polis_928tadw59

dcash29, Thanks for that. Now I am wondering why it is being blocked for me. I have TalkTalk and their security set-up. I have tried 3 times and each occasion the same happened. I will give it another try tonight, and then see what happens tomorrow. It is a warning I am getting. There is nothing to stop me entering TP, but I am advised not to.
Thanks.

My net security flashed up a message that an attck had been blocked. I use Norton. If that is any use to you polis.

I don't have this issue, but if you have an iPhone or iPad, they have a free app that works well. (Don't know about android but probably). Just in case any mods see this. EPZ IS BETTER Smile

FF, Windows 8, Windows defender and Windows firewall.

Works fine here too.

Getting slightly off track, as these threads do:
Ordinarily, the very mention of 'Norton' would fill me with dread and the fact that Norton on one machine is blocking it while another is letting it in makes me more so.

Are you both using the same version of Norton?

No problem here with Malware bytes & AVG. I'm on talk talk as well.

I still cannot get into TP, as it is still being blocked by TalkTalk Security - "This site is harmful" I have the option of ignoring their warning and entering, but am not sure if there could be a risk to my laptop. Not to worry though as I spend most of my time on EPZ for photography matters.

I suppose it depends on how much faith you have in TalkTalk security and whether or not you're prepared to believe that this is a false alarm.
You could try installing another reputable AV and disarming the TalkTalk version temporarily and see what the other one thinks.
I've just had another thought. Presumably you're trying to access TP via the home page. Have you considered getting in via one of the forum pages? You'd need a link, I guess but one of us could easily post that for you.
I'm not sure that would make any difference though.

Thanks Gary.
It would be interesting to know which version ensign's using; a different one, presumably.

polis_928tadw59

Only about 3 yrs computer experience for me, so not keen on disarming TT security, and installing another temporarily. Always found TT security reliable. Last night I googled TP, and tried accessing through one of the forum pages, not just the home page, but again the same happened. As I mentioned above, EPZ is my main site for photography, so am not bothered too much.
