    What "cisco" are you talking about? Is it software on your PC, or your router?

    cheers, Paul

    Sounds like anti virus software but it's hard to say without seeing it. Are you able to post a screen shot of the message?

    cheers, Paul

    missing is the cisco security logo and the yes/no buttons to accept /reject

    The requested web page may be dangerous

    There are 2 possibilities here.

    1. The software is part of your company's security, specifically a Cisco email and web security appliance - formerly Ironport. Essentially the appliance want to know if the email is spam or valid and is asking you.
    2. It is spam / virus.

    As you appear to be a home user it seems unlikely that you have a Cisco appliance, but it may be worth checking if your router is a Cisco.

    cheers, Paul

    If you have the patience to dig deep enough, it turns out that Talk Talk do employ a Cisco Security Appliance to filter emails: TalkTalk Community - No Response Yet

    (It took that guy three months to get them to admit it.)

    I loved the last comment from TT - to paraphrase, "you fixed a problem we wouldn't admit existed and now you want to leave us?".

    cheers, Paul
