    Never happened before. But after upgrading to 4.5.1.431 I see some sites being added as trusted to the websites list everyday. Right now it is webprot.avira.com, webprot.avira.de and inycs-i.gy1.b.yahoodns.net. If I remove them, they are added back again. Anybody else seen this happen? And how do I prevent this?

    Before any of you ask me to go to OA forum, let me say this again that I trust the experience of members @wilders the most. Will look elsewhere only if required. Thanks.

    These sites are "Trusted" according to Online Armor's White List. You can always mark them as "Untrusted"..... or "check-off" the box in "Ignore OA web sites list" (Web sites/ Options) .
    However, if you are updating your Avira A/V, that could present a problem if it is not "Trusted".

    I've also wondered about the massive amounts of sites now listed as "trusted." Definitely, this behavior is somewhat new. One option, I think, is to tick "Ignore OA web sites list" under Web Sites>>Options.

    EDIT: Sorry, I see henryg also mentioned this.

    Hi henryg and JCorliss,

    Thanks for your replies. I have been doing it for the last 3 days, and it seems to work fine.
