Windows Defender blocking Melnet
« on: July 17, 2016, 08:06:17 PM »

Since moving to Windows 10, access to Melnet has been blocked by Windows Defender. Took a day or so for it to happen, but I get connection reset or sever returned no data messages.
Switch off Defender (I have Kaspersky anyway) and bingo, I'm here. But Defender says that it will switch itself back on when it feels like it.
I can't see how to exclude a website from its tentacles, only files, etc.

So has anyone met this, or know how to exclude Melnet from its clutches?

Seems to be only Melnet, C-net is fine, and maybe one other forum got blocked.

I have Windows Defender turned off. I am running Norton, and I don't think Defender is needed when one is running an anti-virus programme.

Wonder if Theo/Clive could ask if the Simple Machines support people have come across MS Defender blocking the forum? Or know how to whitelist it.

I keep switching Defender off, it is increasingly quickly switching itself back on, and Melnet is the only thing it seems to block.
