I was recently configuring the POP-UP Blocking Rules for my MSN Premium Internet browser. The config "rules" selection process offered several WEB SITES to ALLOW or NOT ALLOW POP-UPS FROM, one of them being www.peerevolution.com which as far as I know is a FORUM SITE for "OFFICIAL HOME of ARES SUPPORT FORUM"

WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IS, WHAT IS THE DEGREE OF 'SAFETY" INVOLVED WITH ARES AND SHOULD I ALLOW POP-UPS FROM THIS SITE?

PLEASE ADVISE!!!

THANK YOU!!!!!

The site checks out okay on McAfee's Site Advisor.

Hi trumpetman51, :flowers:

In general I think no site should give you pop ups.

If you want to check links you may use a free tool like: Linkscanner light!!

Furthermore use Google: copy/paste the url in the search box and see what it comes up with.

Another nice tool is McAfee SiteAdvisor for Firefox and/or IE (see bottom of that page.

Good luck!! :thumbsup:
