Hi,

I occasionally access a website related to football. The last couple of times I have tried to access it I receive an "access denied" Internet Explorer error message.

I know that the website is still active but the owners cannot suggest any reason why this is happening. Could AVG be blocking this site for some reason or can anyone suggest a solution? I use Windows 7 and IE9

Thanks.

Hello martinhb,

The website may be inaccessible for various reasons, but this is not probably due to AVG.

Please disable LinkScanner component and see whether issue persists.

Thank you.

Thanks for the suggestion. Are you saying I should permanently disable "LinkScanner" or only disable it when I am trying to access the website?

Hello martinhb,

In order to find out which component is causing the issue, or if the issue is even AVG related, please disable AVG components one by one and see whether it helps and share the results with us.

Thank you.
