Everytime I click my Chaz button, McAfee gives me warnings saying 'Woah! Are you sure you want to go there?'

It then says Chaz exihibits one or more risky behaviours? Does anyone else get this message, and how can I change it?

I get it, too, on my desktop. I always bypass it and hope for the best :eek:
I don't have McFee on my laptop at all, so I don't get it on here

Well, keep in mind that McAfee is crazy and evil.

Just my opinion, of course... :)

And I have no idea how to keep it from screaming at passersby and flinging objects, sorry...good luck with that.

I haven't had that issue with AVG, but my boyfriend's laptop has McAfee and it yells at me, too. I just ignore it, since it obviously isn't dangerous as my desktop is doing just fine.

First off, McAfee is a waste of time, effort and money. Secondly, it's wrong. :p

I use avast!antivirus and don't have an issue.

McAfee has done a great job with our computers it doesn't slow them down, it actually catches things, etc. The only thing that bothers me about it is that it hates this website. I ignore it when it comes to Chaz. :p

Please don't state information as fact without more detail to verify what you stated. Chazhound does not kill computers.

You can check Google Diagnostic page for chazhound.com
Google Safe Browsing diagnostic page for chazhound.com

McAfee is usually very outdated and tags many domains incorrectly.
It uses info from malwareurl.com which is not updated much either.
MalwareURL
Old and outdated information...
Shows old website page listed at:
ChazHound - 404 file not found
That page does not exist.
It also shows old domain expiration dates and
shows chazhound.com on the wrong IP address.

Since I been back, the security and access of the website was the first thing checked. It is monitored and has nothing detected on site or nothing in the logs showing any delivery of a virus or malware to visitors.

Before the website was moved, the content, databases, logs, and access audit was conducted. Over 800 files and entries were made file by file and new creditials were established for admins, databases, and web server access.

Once the updates are in order, then I can appeal the McAfee/malware listings. We should be finished soon... :)

Rest assured that we are proactive in providing a safe website for you.
Warm woofs,

I don't get that message, but the blocking software at work won't let me come to chaz, on the grounds that it's a site about marijuana. I always wondered what was up with that. Maybe I just missed the marijuana section of the boards....

I got that from somewhere one time as well. It's because we've had a couple of threads discussing the topic.
