I haven't been able to get on as, I've now found out, AVG have quarantined the site.  I'm now having to use my phone!  It's gonna drive me mad!

Yes I've been having problems too, my anti-virus keeps telling me the site isn't secure, I've had to enter the Forum as an exclusion.
I think on AVG it's not something easily rectified, a lot of people are having issues with it and having to uninstall the programme.

Thank you both for the info  >41<
I've been trying in vain to find out why I can't get on the forum. After reading these posts on an old mobile phone I've now removed AVG from my laptop (I'm using this laptop just for the forum just in case) and it seemed to have worked  :)
I'm back  >108<

I've downloaded Google Chrome and have now managed to get back on the Forum!  :)

I had a horrid little pop-up from AVG but I clicked on it and it went away!

If I try getting on the site just by clicking on the shortcut on my 'Favourites' list, or type the URL in the normal Internet Explorer toolbar, AVG blocks it!  >:(
Long live Follyfoot!

Hackers try and get into this site on a daily basis now  >97< >96< >37<  >389< Thankfully the anti-hacker software is putting them off but I wonder if it's triggering alarm bells with anti-virus systems. Theoretically it shouldn't.
Cheers,

Today my main PC is now allowing the forum and site to load up without my anti-virus system (AVG) trying to block it.  >116<

It's been weeks since I've been able to get on the forum, despite trying two or three times a day.... Chrome said the site wasn't responding, and my anti virus kept telling me there was a threat, and it had locked malware away in the 'vault'. Nice to see you all again. >41<
