I've been trying to get back on this website for a few days and my attempts were defeated by my Norton antivirus.  I get the big red danger page saying that a "malicious site" is ahead and to use "isolation mode", which doesn't seem to work.  Interestingly, the malicious website is listed as "discovernative" something or other, not bullseyeforum.net.  I suspect it has something to do with the click bait on the bottom of the pages.  I've used this forum for years without any problem, so why now?  Perhaps someone with more tech knowledge can figure this one out.

I've been running Norton 360 since 2007 and never had any issues.  4 desktops one being a high end graphics system and 3 laptops.  I'd be using it on my 32TB Synology NAS too but it doesn't support an OS that is based on the Linix kernal.

Discovernative dot com was considered a harmless site but maybe that has changed.

I agree with Lyman 1903 and my son-in-law who works in Cyber Security.  Norton is a poor choice for virus protection, has to many fingers in to much stuff!

I think you'll find that the built-in Windows Defender is all you need, and much less annoying than Norton.

Stay away from McAfee, worse than Norton!

Well, the problem seems to have gone away on its own.  Thanks to everyone for the tips.

I think McAfee is a virus! I find that Windows Defender is all I need.
