McAfee AntiPhishing Filter???I can not access my banking information without
getting blocked out- I'm not sure how to fix it. Can someone please help?
I would appreciate any and all advice on how to stop this message from appearing.

Could it be that the internet address is actually to a Phishing site? Are you trying to access the site through a bookmark? If you are, try manually typing the internet address of your banking site into the address bar yourself.

If you want, I can try to access the site and see if it comes up for me. Do you have the internet address?

When you click on internet banking, what does the link in the address bar say? Can you copy and paste the exact link here?

Have you tried disabling Mcafee? Try disabling the Antihishing filter (just for this test) and see if you can connect to the secure site. The exact address of the secure site is...

https://s82.lanxtra.com/internet/vlogin.html

If the address of the site you connect to is different, then I'm going to guess that there is some phishing going on. If it's EXACTLY the same, then it's probably mcafee.

Did you or anyone else install the stand alone Mcafee Anti-Phishing filter? According to Mcafee, you can change settings for this filter in IE. This is what Mcafee readme has to say...

To configure the filter settings:

1. Open Internet Explorer.

2. From the Tools menu, choose ‘McAfee
Anti-Phishing Filter’ to see the Configuration
screen.

3. Deselect the ‘Enable automatic configuration
update mode’ checkbox to enable the
configuration fields.

TIP:
Changes to the filter’s configuration settings
may corrupt its performance. To return the
filter to its original state, recheck the
‘Enable automatic configuration update mode’
checkbox.

You Fixed it !!! I can get on the site. Thank you so much!!!!
Now, are they suggesting I shouldn't leave that box unchecked? Do I need to turn on all the protection, I turned off? I am really unhappy with mcafee. I have norton too. If you have any problems with their software and want help? You can pay just $2.95 a minute...just to make something you bought work right....Well, I can't thank you enough.
I totally thrilled I found this site!!! :tazz:

No, you did! All I did was help... but you're very welcome anyways! :)

As for keeping the filter on/off, I cannot make this decision for you. One thing I can say is that you should never have any sites in your Trusted zone in IE. You never know when a site can all of a sudden become "untrustworthy". I recommend you not have any sites in there.

It's also not recommended to run two AV programs on a single machine. I really dislike Mcafee... and I can't say too much about Norton either! :tazz:

Personally, I use AVG free version. It's very good, it's free, and it even keeps your definitions updated the same as the pay version.

I totally thrilled I found this site!!!

Yes, this site is one of the premiere help sites on the net! We are volunteers and very proud of it!
