  1. I've had no problem with MyHeritage and use it as well as Ancestry and Family Search.  They've actually been pretty good about extending my subscription when I won a door prize on one of the Family Tree Webinar sessions.  I did complain when they and Family Tree merged because they were offering half price subscriptions for Family Tree users that did not already have MyHeritage membership.  Have you checked out the daily genealogical bargains website?  The links there work well and are legitimate.

    As John says, don't give personal information to someone who calls you.


  2. Thanks Jim. By the way everybody, this morning Norton 360 no longer tagged this site as unsafe and I no longer had to ignore it and log in anyway. Perhaps they finally listened to myself and other users telling them this was an okay site. It seems sometimes if a site has little traffic they label it as not safe.



  3. I've modified my Norton safe surfing settings to turn of just the 'block malicious pages'. This will notify you that they think the page is unsafe, but allow you to log on to the site. This still allows Norton safe search to evaluate sites. Seems a lot of their non-recommendations are simply made because the site isn't very active. This is very likely on this site. What is the purpose of the chat forum? Can anyone tell me?

  4. Unfortunately I had to turn Safe Search off in Norton. There is an option to turn it off for a limited amount of time, until you reboot your system or permanently. Turning it off for a limited amount of time, just to access this site works. You can also click on the red x labeling the site as unsafe (or the message that might appear at the top of the screen) to allow access anyway. If you've got your password vault open, you'll then get another message that will ask you whether you want to autofill anyway. So you can log on even when Safe Search flags the site, you just have to go through a lot of hoops to do that.


  5. After disabling Safe Search (maybe not a good idea for all sites), I could go straight through the log in procedure with no error messages to disregard. I did use Norton's procedure to have them re-evaluate the page, but have no idea how long a fix, if there is one, will take place. Meanwhile I'm definitely thinking of switching to another security package as an add on to native Windows.



  6. I've had the following problem for the last two days. When I try to get to the www.whollygenes.com/forums201/index page to logon, Norton flags it as an unsafe page. I can continue to the site and eventually get logged in. I clicked on the details in the warning and got the following: name of threat Trojan Malscript and the address (not what I expected) //blog.whollygenes.com

    Has anyone else had this happen? Does anyone know why it is happening?



  7. I had the same problem with my new Gateway with Windows 7 installed and a brother multifunction printer/scanner/fax. I did a search on VFPCOM.COMUTIL and then went to the Microsoft page and downloaded the driver. Even though I got a message after the install that it may not have gotten entered in the registry, subsequent attempts to scan documents directly into TMG8 worked fine.
