Same. The site is getting flagged as a deceptive site. Maybe people are reporting icefilms as such for no good reason?

1) Someone, an amateur, probably got their nose out of joint out of some frustration.
2)MPAA attack method.
3) Bad advertiser, junk code or someone deliberately doing an attack of some kind.

Is all I can think of, though Abe and Russ don't like it, I take my own security seriously by using both Adblock Plus and NoScript, writing text lines within the firewall to limit damage and keep AVG and Malwarebytes updated.

We are working on it there is no clear explanation at this point, It may be as someone pointed out that it is a sour grapes type attack. We will see. Thank You all for your patience.

Got flagged a couple of times yesterday and set in about it being a Safe Site for me and haven't been bothered today at all.

We are pretty sure it was a malvertisment that slipped thru in one of the many pockets that are out there. Abe flushed them and it cleared it. So all is well now. The Ad brokers are hell on these now because just one can sink them.

TinyWall allows for custom blocklists within an edit dialogue is what I meant to say, most good firewalls do, TW just allows for more control over the one in Windows. Kinda sleepy that day.

Got it - thanks! Been using TinyWall for quite awhile now. Useful little program. Reminds me of ZoneAlarm when it first came out (not the way ZoneAlarm is now): Small footprint, straightforward UI, and it just works.
