I am constantly receiving notification of a blocked website on my mac. It is annoying.
Two radio buttons beneath the dialog box are "Close" and "Add to Trusted List". I always close the message so that it goes away. Does the mac have a virus (I have done a full scan and found nothing)? Why is this happening? Help!!!! I don't use this mac for surfing at all; The message just keeps appearing.

The reply does not answer the question, it just tries to provide an excuse why she has to put up with this.

Hi AmericaMom1, welcome to the community! 

If you are sure that the website being blocked is safe, you can add the specific website to the Exception List of your Trend Micro program to enable access to it, please do consider the fact that when you add the website to your Exception List, even if the website is dangerous, Trend Micro would not block it.

To add a website to the Exception list, you can check out the link below.

Should you have further questions, please let us know so that we can assist you.

Thank you and have a great day!
