I am using ESET AV now a days. I like it, except it won't let me visit the same sites I visited when I used AVG. I have tried altering the personal firewall.. but apparently I don't know what to change. It shows me a this message below. I tried going to task manager and killing ESET, and it still won't let me visit the site. Can someone help me out with some settings?

Web page:

Access to the web page was blocked by ESET Smart Security.
The web page is on the list of websites with potentially dangerous content.

Hi, if even disabling ESET will not let you load a webpage, it could be a HOSTS file setting.
Go to C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc
And open your HOSTS file with notepad. Do a find (ctrl+F) and search for the webpage you are trying to visit.

I don't use the product, but here is a link to ESET support, specifically in 'adding' sites to block. How do I configure my ESET security product to restrict access to specific websites? But should get you where you need to remove sites. Pay close attention to #5 If there are any currently blocked URL's, they will be displayed. There should be a way to remove the specific ones you want.

Hey Chuck Norris! Do not visit a dangerous web site! It may contain some bad content and you may end up infecting your computer. What is the use of ESET if you want to bypass it and visit dangerous web site ? To visit dangerous sites, use a Ubuntu Live CD.
