Somehow jpgs on my photo blog sites* are no longer displaying FOR ME - they seem to still work the same as always for others.

  • http://montereyscenics.posterous.com/ and http://iceagetrail.posterous.com/

I don't recall tweaking any settings on my computer that would cause this to happen. Is it a browser setting, maybe? But, I'm not seeing any difference in general, just on MY sites. But, again, others can still see the images, so I'm confused as to how this happened (and more importantly, how to change it back/fix it).

If I opt to download one of my images from the iceagetrail site, McAfee Site Advisor intercepts the attempt to download the file with:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Whoa!

Are you sure you want to go there?

http://getfile4.posterous.com/getfile/files.poster... may be risky to visit.

Why were you redirected to this page? When we visited this site, we found it exhibited one or more risky behaviors. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When I opt to go ahead anyway, I get to a "Panda Cloud Antivirus Safe Search Protection" page:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This error (HTTP 403 Forbidden) means that Internet Explorer was able to connect to the website, but it does not have permission to view the webpage. For more information about HTTP errors, see Help. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So...now I'm more confused and discombobulated than ever...McAfee and/or Panda are preventing me from seeing my own site? (I can login and get to the page/site, but the images are not displayed)

If you disable those anti-malware programs, can you view the pictures as expected? –  Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Dec 26 '12 at 17:43

First, we need to have a deeper look at the problem, to give a final solution + What happens when you temporarily disable all anti virus software? Are the images showing then? + What happens when you view your own blog with an alternative browser? Ideally with a fresh profile and no cookies, like Firefox Portable or Opera (installed in portable mode) –  nixda Dec 26 '12 at 17:46
    
I didn't install Panda; I think, in fact, I uninstalled it once before; I'll try to do that again. I find now that if I view it from the Tiled start screen in Windows 8, it works fine (where the URL edit box is at the bottom of the page); the problem occurs when using the browser from the Windows 8 Desktop area...but only exhibited that behavior within the last week or so...strange...I don't see how to uninstall Panda - it's not in the Control Panel | Uninstall apps list. –  B.
