    Don't know whats wrong but I can't visit BHW with protection "Enabled".Can surf all other sites well...the product is reputed..so is BHW!

    Any thoughts/??

    Edit-Oops! Its "Blocking" not "Blacking" BHW is already black enough ;)

    BHW isn't the only website of this type Malwarebytes is blocking; 3 of the 4 similar blackhat sites I frequent are blocked as well. I too shut off the web protection.

    MalwareBytes is a beast when it comes to cleaning up infections, but it's not my preferred active protection just for that reason. It seems to take issue with almost everything I do online. :p

    MB isn't a replacement for a good AV. I use nod32 for my active protection and MB to scan new files and maintenance, have never had any issues with it.

    It's not blocking it for content, It's blocking it by keyword "blackhat" which Generally means Hacking.....

    You should be able to add it to an allow list within MWB....
