Unable too open a URL

Occasionally when trying too open a URL I am prevented by a yellow 'star' like image with a red explanation mark inside it. Could anyone tell me what this is and how I can open the URL.

Thank You

Hi algey

Give us an example of one of these URL's you cannot open.

Probably Google toolbar blocking popups http://answers.google.com/answers/threadview/id/395018.html

Hi Graphicool1

Cannot give you an example at the moment( it was a sports topic-Golf)as it only happens a very small pecentage of the time and it doesn't happen only on sport topics. Thanks for the reply.

lotvic, thanks for the heads up on the Google toolbar/answers/thread will try it when prevented the next time

P.S. will post a URL if disabling the 'Pop up blocker' doesn't work.

I think your anti-virus or ISP is telling you that the site is not safe and may contain a virus or Malware and is unsafe to open.
