I'm a real newbie, just got my first laptop a few weeks ago, an HP Pavilion & downloaded Kaspersky AntiVirus 8.0 software. Here's my problem: a website I was using a lot was running really fast with no problems up thru New Years Eve. Then, starting Jan 1st, it is sooo slooww! Takes forever to switch pages. Other websites work fine. I saw that there's a phishing filter checking each page of this website & it takes forever to be approved.

-- could there have been a change between New Years Eve (last day of 2008) & Jan 1st 2009 which affected speed of this website. Or update of phishing filter affected by new year?

-- If this continues, should I take a chance & use Tools to turn off automatic Phishing dectection when I use this website? Or is that too risky? Don't understand why this particular website is treated so suspiciously, it's just a Surgery Support website with message boards & been very helpful to me.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Before deciding whether to turn off the phishing filter on any site, you can always do a web search for the name of the site along with the word "phishing" to get more opinions on whether the filter is needed.

As long as you realize what phishing is, and use common sense, you don't need a filter.
