Default TalkTalk is busted

Whilst browsing, I have very occaisionaly seen a TalkTalk page appear
with the warning 'Warning: This site is suspected to contain a virus!'

Today whilst simply trying to find a specialist adhesive it has flagged
up the above warning page at least six times. Clicking the button on
the webpage for My Account, which seems to suggest I might be able to
change the settings, it seems I cannot even log into My Account at all,
because we are originally Tiscali customers.

I then tried to log in to my tiscal webmail account with the same
result. That at least used to work and worked until a couple of months
ago.

This is a crazy situation.

Just been on TT's site to my account with no trouble (other than having to
enable Java!).
My route to TT was: Homecall - Pipex - Tiscali - TT, so even longer than
yours.

So, can their supposed virus filter be disabled then, once I do get in
that is? The whole situation seems to be very confused.

I've just been onto TalkTalk about the problems...

They say the reason we cannot log in, is because the My Acount
thingummybob is turned off for three days for maintenance - WHAT?

They were though able to switch off the HomeSafe thingummybob, or at
least they said they could and had tunred it off on our account.

I'll see if the warning reappears.
