Your security software is starting to piss me off. I couldn't pay a bill cause your program blocked me from the site so I had to pay it again (Forbidden 403). then I found out I paid the bill twice because the transaction went through even though your program said (forbidden 403) & gave me a blank screen. What the hell's going on? People on minimum wage can't be paying bills twice or taking days off work to pay the dam bill. What's going on?

Hi whakamoe,

There could also be a possibility that the Trend Micro program did prevent you from accessing the website if certain conditions were met such as:

1) Did you have the Data Theft Prevention feature on?
2) Have you tried checking the Site Safety Center to see if it is detected as "safe"?
3) Did a pop-up from Trend Micro show up stating that it was blocked?

Referring to #1, it should look like this:

Transfer of Protected Data Blocked

Referring to #3, it should look like this:

Website Blocked
