    Hello,

    i would like another Opera user to check a link(s) for me if possible. I often visit the official Dell site here in Canada. This is the link,

    http://www.dell.ca/

    which i can get to with no problem. Now when i click any of the links in the dropdown boxes for desktops, laptops, etc i get a warning from Opera that the page has been blacklisted. I have visited that site and links within hundreds of times with nary a hiccup. Could someone please verify.

    Thanks.

    No, I don't bother with fraud protection for general surfing.

    Yes snowbound, the site returns me fraud warning whenever I try clicking on any links on the dropdown boxes. I have fraud protection enabled.

    I got it as well. I wonder if there have been some changes to fraud protection recently because I got my first warning yesterday when I clicked on a link to a well known image sharing site that I have been to many times before?

    The problem with Dell's pages is I think worldwide, they have unbelievably amateur and uncaring web programmers.

    OK. Nothing new here - I'm missing something.
    How do I turn on/off Opera's fraud protection?
    Thanks.

    Hi,

    You can do that in advanced preferences section.

    Because these warnings only appeared to start on 8th May, I was wondering if they could be the result of changes to the various site's server software, rather than to Opera?

    However, it appears that Dell use Microsoft IIS while the image sharing site I mentioned uses Apache! So much for my theory that a Microsoft update, such as XP SP3, might be to blame!
