    So I have no idea where to post this thread so the mods can move it if they need to, but I am catching up on a Disreport and so far on 2 of the pages I have been blocked for looking at due to malware being on those pages. Do I report this to someone and if so who do I send it to? Thanks

    Sounds like your antivirus is blocking the page because it thinks there is malware, not necessarily because there actually is. Malware cannot harm your computer unless your downloading something to your computer that contains malware. Looking at a webpage doesn't count. Antivirus programs though will attempt to protect you by blocking webpages that have been reported to them as containing links to downloading malware, or pages that automatically kick a download off through java, etc. that contain malware. Typically a lot of these can be false positives especially if your using free antivirus such as Avast or AVG. I would venture to guess there isn't a whole lot of malware floating around the Dis site. :thumbsup2

    I'm going to move this over to the Tech Support forum. I am sure someone there can help you. :)
