    Where are you trying to access it from a home computer - at home
    or a computer - even your own - somewhere other than at your house

    Did it open on this computer previously


    Has anything been changed since it last opened - eg browser, router/modem etc.


    Do you control the computer and its settings or is that done by someone else


    If you are using Chrome or Firefox try with IE

    No, no changes made,
    and I am the one controlling the computer.
    Just tried using IE to open the website, same result.

    On IE
    Tools Internet Options
    Security tab
    click Trusted sites
    then click sites
    then add the site to the list




    I have checked the site on a number of website security and reputation checkers - and generally it comes back clean.


    However I am not prepared to try and open it myself

    When i copied and paste the site, it says
    "Site added to this zone must use the http://prefix.
    This prefix assures a secure connection"

    Well although the checks I made came back clean I did not want to trust it
    the report I presume is from your Anti Virus
    It is surely not a question of the website I PROVIDED -
    is it? as I only sent what you said you were trying to access


    Presuming that you know the nature of the site - the decision to access it or not must be left with you
