    Yahoo Sports


    From time to time, my computer gives me a big red warning page telling me Yahoo Sports is an "Unsafe Site". Any ideas what that is all about?

    Using IE11 or Edge ?

    If using IE11, see if you have SmartScreen Filter turned On.
    If yes, turn it off and see if there is any difference.

    Open IE > Tools > SmartScreen Filter > Turn off SmartScreen Filter > dot the "Turn off SmartScreen Filter" > OK

    I'm not seeing anything under tools that says Smartscreen Blocker. Where else should I look? Never mind, I found it under safety. I have turned it off. We'll see if it happens again. It doesn't happen every time I go to the site, only about once a day.

    Note that my tools list doesn't look like the one you displayed. I must be using an older version of IE. But I did find it.

    No. There is only one IE version in Windows 10. And that is IE11.
    As to you have different listing under Tools, that's another story, and I don't know how to explain that.

    I assume that you now have SmartScreen Filter turned off.
    The question is ............................. does it help solving your problem ?

    Unknown whether it solved the problem or not. It hasn't occurred today, and usually shows up infrequently. I may not know if it works until tomorrow, since it isn't an everytime thing. I will keep the thread open and let you know. If nothing happens between now and Saturday morning, we'll call it solved and I'll close the thread. Thanks for your help.
