    Could you try disabling the Web Threat Shield (under PC Security - Shields) and see if that corrects the issue?

    Thank you!

    FWIW, Prevx 3 w/SOL tags the Panda URL Filter as a low level threat and wants to eliminate it.

    FP. SafeOnline (prevX) and Identy and Privacy Module in WSA are both incompatible with the Panda URL filter, as well as Rapport Trusteer and any software that control browser process. I found that by switching SafeOnline OFF in PrevX it worked but I just had to uninstall WSA to make it work. Would it be possible to make WSA Essential compatible with the Panda URL filter, I like this feature(as another layer of protection!).;)

    Technically it's not that WSA is incompatible with Panda or Trusteer. It's actually that they are incompatible with WSA. WSA does its modifications and checking first and this is successful. The third party programs are not able to handle the modified data stream or the fact that it was checked first.

    The only way to make it "Compatible" is for them to fix their stuff, or for WSA to silently do absolutely nothing when it detects them.
