    Every now & then I'd like to get onto a site where I get this warning:
    Is there a way to disable this blocklist feature in NOD, like I can do with other security products?

    Any help would be appreciated... thanks!!!

    If you think that a site is blocked in error (e.g. it used to host malware in the past and is clean at the moment), report it to ESET as per the instructions here.

    Thanks for the replies.
    So, I take it, there's no way to disable this feature.
    It's strange to me that there's no setting to disable.

    You can disable web access protection if you don't want ESET to protect you against Internet threats.

    You can white-list individual sites with wild-cards.

    Hit F5 for Advanced Settings and look for "Address Management" under "Web Access Protection." Then add the name of the site you don't want blocked to the list of addresses excluded from filtering. Make sure the List Active box is checked.

    For example, adding *google* to the list will disable filtering any web-sites that have "google" anywhere in their name.

    There is a check box to disable "Web Access Protection" entirely, but the icon will turn orange indicating that you not completely protected if you do that.

    Another option, if you want to allow web-sites on all standard HTTP ports is to uncheck the box for HTTP checking in the Advanced Settings. That will effectively disable Web Access Protection for browsing without turning the icon orange.

    Yes, disabling web protection is not recommended and doing so would expose one's computer at risk.
