    Okay I use this program called "Shup" it's made for uploading images and audio data (mp3, wav, flac, etc) for the program I use to record my music which is Reaper! BUT anyways when someone just recently sent me a screenshot to help them troubleshoot ESET is blocking the address! Look at this screenshot via Dropbox (not as easy as Shup)

    FYI. That Web site is labeled "dangerous." Re: -http://www.urlvoid.com/scan/shup.com-

    But I know for a fact that it's not. I'd like to turn off the function of blocking websites but not disabling the function of cleaning

    Are you saying these are false positives? -http://amada.abuse.ch/?search=shup.com

    Check the VirusTotal links.

    Whether or not the domain still hosts them, or hosts other malicious stuff, I didn't bother to check, but perhaps there's a reason why Eset blocks it.

    Yes, it should because you are blocking everything, unless you allow each site.

    I meant just setting the List of allowed addresses to shup.com and not checking the Allow access only to HTTP addresses in the list of allowed addresses.

    Edit: I believe that you can use the List of addresses excluded from filtering, under Address management, to add the site in question.

    While I am not a huge fan of reputation based sites such as URL Void, more than several flags against a certain query would certainly indicate and issue with the site and therefore I would have to agree with JR's findings and recommendations.
