Problem with IP block

Recommended Posts

I'm having a problem with the IP block feature, I wanted to visit some websites, which I know are safe enough to visit but MB blocked the websites, so I disabled the protection but I was still not ableto visit the websites.

My browser is CometBird 3.5 (firefox) and I have teh same problem with IE8.

I cleared the log data (there were no files about IP blocks) and also restarted MB serveral times.

I would like to know how I can acces these websites again or put them on the ignore list.

Thanks in advance

Hi ossie7 and welcome to malwarebytes'!

When you disabled it, did you uncheck "Enable Protection" in the taskbar? That turns off the real-time protection, but not the ip blocking as it is a seperate component. To do so uncheck the "Website Blocking" to disable. Also to add a site to the ignore list, first visit the site. When you see it blocking the site, right click the taskbar icon and click "Add to ignore list". That should let you proceed.

Edit: Add example pictures.

It is best to post in the False Positives area of the forum:


Read IP Blocking False Positives first:
