So, my brother couldn’t access my brightnet.co.uk website the other day through his Virgin connection, but no problems via 3G on his phone. After an hour of literally scratching my head I found the culprit. Virgin Web Safe. Somehow it had kicked in a few days ago automatically. He logged in to his MyAccount at virginmedia.com and turned the bloody feature off and “hey presto” he was back on my site.
Now, I know what you’re thinking, “How did you even guess that could be it?” Well, it was part genius, part luck, mostly luck though. The other day a customer couldn’t load TeamViewer (remote control program) due to an error from TalkTalk Scam ProtectionÂ saying that the site was blocked! I unblocked it and everything worked as normal, but of course told him to be wary of Indian ScammersÂ claiming to be from Microsoft!
