    Long ago, I lost access to the popular geek paraphernalia website, ThinkGeek.com. Finally took the time to track it down to NOD32's active filter. If I take my browser off the active filter list or add *.thinkgeek.com to the except list, I can access ThinkGeek.com. Problem solved.

    However, I'm curious why this site is blocked. Firstly, I can't find anything that says why active filter blocked the site. No messages. No logs. And I've looked at the page's source code, and I don't see any particularly questionable code (though granted, I don't know what the active filter is looking for). Secondly, what exactly is questionable about it so that web designers can avoid getting similarly blocked?

    Hello BennTech,

    This is not an issue that I have seen. I have also tested this to try an verify it. I was able to access the site each time.

    Thank you,
    Richard
