I have Avast Free Antivirus, SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition, SpywareBlaster
and CCleaner 64 bit.

You need the site in the list not just a single web page.
In other words www.talktalk.co.uk (or maybe *.talktalk.co.uk) should be in
the trusted site list.
You might conceivably even need other sites in the list if the web pages
use resources from other sites.
The site https://www.talktalk.co.uk is in the list, as is other talktalk
sites.

Andrew you are really good.

The second thing I did on your topic was to uncheck 'Restricted Sites
Protection' on Spyware Blaster and that unsightly error message disappeared
instantly and I am able to access my Webmail. Great. Thanks a lot.

So what do you think that I should do now? Leave Spyware Blaster as it is
or maybe replace it?

IMHO, you have way too much "protection" software installed. Microsoft
Security Essentials is really pretty good and is less likely to
interfere with Windows programs. It includes spyware protection. I'd
stick with that until you find a real reason to install something more.

Agreed. Not necessarily about using MS Security Essentials, but about having
too much. I have 1 AntiVirus application installed (in the case of this
specific machine AVG Free) and nothing else other than the built in firewall
which is set to Off for Domain Mode (it only enables when I take it
elsewhere, it is off when at home or office).

So, what does everyone think I should keep out of these: I have Avast Free
Antivirus, SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition, SpywareBlaster
and CCleaner 64 bit. SURERAntiSpyware usually finds two cookie trackers.

Avast is a resident virus scanner and is not equivalent to the other
products you mention. You should keep that.

CCleaner is an on-demand cleanup utility. It is not equivalent to the
other products you mention. It only runs when you ask it to, so it
doesn't clash with anything else. You can keep that.

Superantispyware is an on-demand spyware detector. It only runs when
you ask it to, so unless you are running two or more similar programs
at once there should be no conflict. You can keep that.

I don't know Spywareblaster, but if it's an on-demand only product,
there should be no problem using it as long as you don't run it
simultaneously with another similar product. But if you do find that
it's causing a problem... dump it. There are other alternatives.

I have three spyware detector programs, Ad-Aware, SuperAntiSpyware, and
Malwarebytes Anti Malware. I don't run them at the same time, but I
used them as sanity checks against each other. No problem. It's good to
have second and third opinions

Thanks for that, very helpful. SpywareBlaster prevents spyware and malware.
It is a preventer and a blocker and runs of its own volition.

Does Spyware Blaster have the ability to adjust the list? It sounds like
it may be a bit like Spybot's Immunize feature and auto-fills the
browsers own security lists.

Spyware Blaster's official forum is here if you haven't checked. Maybe
somebody can help configuring the program, or adjusting the list to
whitelist whatever was being blocked:

There is one companion program you can run with others.
Look at www.immunet.com
It is free and "light weight"

Following my excitement the error which prevented me accessing my Webmail
reappeared, but intermittently so I uninstalled SpywareBlaster and there is
no change. Can we leave that at the moment and deal with this. When I open
IE8 I get 'Restricted sites|Protected Mode = Off at the bottom of the page.
When I go to Internet Options > Security >Restricted Sites > I find that it
is set as 'High' and it will not budge, whatever I do. I have 'Reset all
zones to default level'. Is there something wrong here?

Now, a few minutes later, IE8 just shows 'Internet|Protected Mode: Off' and
I could access my Webmail but now, as I type, the error message is back and
Webmail access is denied and OE8 is showing 'Restricted sites|Protected
Mode: Off.

I removed http://www.talktalk.co.uk from the list in 'Restricted Sites' and
now the error message has gone and I can access my Webmail quite freely.
Now 'Internet|Protected Mode: Off' is shown and hopefully that will remain
for this purpose. Early days yet, but I sense that I may have 'cracked' it,
although I am a total optimist.

No offence intended. I can see you know more about this than I do.
What a chaotic situation; java & javascript. Worse than Betamax & VHS!

No offense taken - I just wanted to brag...

And as for what I know: I was an early adopter of BetaMax during the
media wars, so as you can tell, my advice is probably not worth much :)

Forgive me for bumping this year+ old thread and not starting a new
one :p

I get the 'javascript not enabled' error on this site:
http://test-ipv6.com/

win7-64bit IE8
javascript is enabled in the tools/internet
options/security/custom/scripting section
site is whitelisted, I have allowed the site everywhere I can think of
MS Security Essentials is all I have loaded


Site works in Chrome, but it bugs me that I can't figure out why or
what is wrong in the IE8 setup.
Thanx!
