    Bullguard doesn't like Windows Secrets?

    hi guys, i posted a link to the non destructive win 7 reformat article on a forum i go to and when one of the guys clicked the link he got this message from Bullguard

    'Originally Posted by BullGuard Anti-Virus To keep you safe, access to this page has been blocked by BullGuard.

    The site is listed as a malicious site that may be stealing identity information, plant viruses on your machine or do other harmful things.

    The information we have indicate that this site:



    • Hosts pages that impersonate other web pages usually with the intent of stealing passwords, credit card numbers, or other information.



    What would you like to do?'

    im sure its a false positive but he isnt convinced and who could blame him when a message like that is displayed. could anybody shed any light on the matter.

    btw sorry if this is in the wrong section, i didnt know where else to put it tbh.

    "The information we have indicate that this site:

    You have a really over-aggressive web shield there! Yes, this is a false-positive. It is flagging ALL web pages which redirect secure log ins. I suggest you change your security vendor.

    It seems BullGuard is an apt name.
