Protection Module Website Blocking - Not functioning correctly

Recommended Posts


Unfortunately this is an issue that I can not always reproduce, but I will describe the problem for you anyway.

If "Start malicious website blocking when protection module starts." is checked, sometimes I find after Windows has started that the Website Blocking module has been loaded anyway (only workaround I have found is "disableipblocking" to 1 in the registry).

Also, if Site Blocking is enabled and you uncheck it in the protection module then it will take quite some time before you can actually get a blocked site to load.

Both of the above are on a system running Windows 7 64bit.

Many Thanks

Hi Haider,

I have indeed read through that - infact that was how I found out about the disableipblocking registry option.

The point I was trying to make was that if it was started, then disabled, it takes quite some time before it allows connections to a previously blocked site, and also that even if you disable it though de-selecting "Start malicious website blocking when protection module starts." it sometimes still blocks sites anyway.

I made a suggestion here that users should be given the option to add IPs (including IP ranges to the exclude list) which though would not solve the above problem, would mean that (at least for me) it would not have to be disabled in the first place.

Many Thanks.

Hi -

I have just noted your signature - AVG 2011 has caused several errors and could be the program error -

AVG will not allow the install of Malwarebytes on some computers with their new 2011 version -

Fully disable or temp uninstall your AVG and see if the problem still occurs - Many have gone back to AVG 9 for the moment -

Thank You -
