    Prevx detected on one system when I wanted to enter the GUI of router (Fritz!Box).

    http://fritz.box/cgi-bin/webcm?getpage=..

    This is another false positive and should be corrected ASAP.
    You enter 'fritz.box' in your browsers URL field to open the
    router GUI. So that should not be prevented by SafeOnline / Prevx.

    Thanks - we'll have this fixed shortly, in the meantime you can just click "Ignore" to allow it to be visited on your PC.

    Could you let me know what IP address your router uses (and I suspect you're using the hosts file to redirect it, correct?)

    Thanks! :)

    I just checked what happened there (it's not my system):

    ## Removed by Prevx: 192.168.178.1 fritz.box ##

    On this single system for some reason I had at
    one time long ago to enter this address to host-file
    (router wasn't reachable without) but under normal
    circumstances this entry isn't necessary because fritz.box
    (entered in URL field) leads automatically to 192.168.178.1,
    however this works.

    Now I don't need this entry anymore (fritz.box works)
    but it is a false positive anyway and so fixing it would be great.
    ;)

    The same thing happened to me. Prevx has commented out my entire hosts file? Why?

    Here's just a sample of what it looks like:
    Code:
    ## Removed by Prevx: 127.0.0.1  fr.a2dfp.net ##
    ## Removed by Prevx: 127.0.0.1  m.fr.a2dfp.net ##
