Hello everyone, My F-Secure firewall is turned on and my Windows Vista Security Center reports that it's deactivated. The message was appearing with the ISTP48 and it's still appearing with the ISTP49. Ppopoyy

I have tried to visit some web pages with IE9 but the F-Secure Online Safety had prevented my access tentatives and it reported the web pages as harmful with blocking notifications. I have tried the same thing with Firefox 6 and the same result was too.
With Google Chrome 13, Opera 11.50, Safari 5.1 and Comodo Dragon 12.2, I could not access those web pages but there were no F-Secure Online Safety blocking notifications.
I think that this confirms what «Sling» has said :)
I have saved three harmful web sites URLs on my computer from the F-Secure blocking notification windows and i have tried to verify the Online Safety web site blockage counter. With IE9, Firefox 6, Safari 5.1, Comodo Dragon 12.2, i have observed that the counter works correctly. I have visited the 3 harmful web sites with each of those navigators and, in each case, the counter indicates the right number.
The exception was with opera 11.50. The initial web sites blockage counter just before my test was 866. I tried to visit the first harmful web site, F-Secure has prevented the access. I closed the navigator and i opened the program for reading the new counter number which was 871 then i closed it. I launched the second harmful website, the counter number became 876, I launched the third, the counter number became 881. I have done those two last verifications exactly like the first one steps. In total, F-Secure has blocked 3 harmful websites and it indicated in the counter the blockage of 15 harmful websites (881 - 866 = 15) !!!. The counter number increases with a value of 5 instead of 1.
In order to check the online Safety visited web sites counter, i have done the following tests :
I have noted the initial number of the visited web sites. It was 24 984.Then, I have visited 5 web sites home pages ONLY (Filehippo.com, youtube.com, Softpedia.com, F-Secure.com, Facebook.com) : I opened GOOGLE CHROME 13 which launches with a blank page, i visited the first web site home page and i d irectly closed the navigator just after the complete loading of the web site home page and i opened the online safety web site blockage counter to read the new number then i closed it . Then, i re-opened google chrome and i visited the second web site, then the third, the fourth and the fifth all with the same steps which i have done with the first web site. I have visited those websites home pages only one time for each one. The final number of the visited web sites counter was 25 045.
In total, i have visited 5 web sites home pages. The F-Secure Online Safety has indicated that i have visited 61 web sites (25 045 - 24 984 = 61) !!!!
I have repeated exactly the same work with IE9, Firefox 6, Opera 11.50, Safari 5.1 and Comodo Dragon 12.2 :
With IE9 : the program has indicated 35 visited web sites instead of 5
With Firefox 6 : the program has indicated 25 visited web sites instead of 5
With Opera : the program has indicated 40 visited web sites instead of 5
With Safari : the program has indicated 49 visited web sites instead of 5
With Comodo Dragon : the program has indicated 69 visited web sites instead of 5
