    OK... I've been meaning to post the first part of this for a while now...

    About 5 or 6 times a month randomly, black hat world will be down for me...

    Has anyone else experienced this? It comes back up after an hour or 2 usually... but it's so damn annoying and seems to happen when I REALLY want to get in...lol...

    Updates or something?

    OK.... SECONDLY, my computer was so messed up I just reformatted everything and so the norton 60 day trial came up. But now IT is preventing me from getting to BHW... ( I had to disable it to post this...)

    [​IMG]

    Is this just cookies or something? Any ideas?

    And lastly, How in the hell do I get it to stop doing this! Googled it with no results so far...

    I'll keep looking but if anybody knows....

    Thanks,

    DMOC =)

    That norton warning is just a false positive. It's been talked about here before, it's a problem with a form on the main page, not malware.

    Norton is a pile of shit that thinks that everything on the internet is a virus, except for the real viruses, which it lets in through the front door. Get a real antivirus like Kapersky or NOD32 and you will be much better off.

    And yea, BHW does go down from time to time for maintenance, just like every other site on the interwebz. You're just noticing it more because you spend so much time here :)

    just put www.blackhatworld.com on the exclude list of your norton anti-virus scanner. diamond dave and harro are righteous dudes. you can trust them.

    ps: how the heck do you make good annotations on your screen shots? like smooth arrows pointing and that?

    You shouldn't run norton, it's probably one of the worst anti viruses out there, it uses up so much resources for doing nothing to be quite honest, I suggest you use NOD32, if you know anything about the internet, you can get a safe-download from ESET's offical website, then just use google to find serials / logins to get the updates. :)
