If someone is using Avast can you post a guide how to exclude the website from protection? I will add it to the FAQ.

I am using avast - I had to shut down web protection completely so boinc and any browser can reach your site.
The problem is that "myfirewall.org" is known for a f'n lot of virus-spreading sites...
If you can change your webhoster most of us will be glad...

You can exclude the website from protection. I dont know why these crappy software is blocking the site. Antivir is ok. I have also no problems with norton internet security.

TrendMicro didn't block it and now Kaspersky says all is OK as well.
