    I use Photobucket to host images for posting on here & elsewhere

    On another forum I subscribe to the images are Not visible when I'm signed in - when clicking my link I get Norton message saying this is a known Malicious website & its blocked
    also happens with some other using Photobucket to host

    When I am not signed in everyones images Are visible & no message appears

    Anyone get this from my photos here?

    If so what's the cure?

    If I can see a photo I generally don't click through so can't tell you.

    However Norton, Mcafee and the rest of the yee-ha brigade often throw false positives on perfectly innocuous sites.

    Have you tried Norton support forum?

    No - I'll give it a whirl

    when I'm logged out then the photo appears as normal

    when logged in only the link / string? appears - (applies to all photos )

    only those from pbucket come with a warning

    I should also clarify when I log out of SC - all photos remain visible (no strings attached)
