Availability "pop-up" is blocked by McAfee Spamkiller

When I try to set my availability, the small pop-up that appears to give me this option instead is blocked by my McAfee Spamkiller. Even if I turn off Spamkiller, this continues to happen. Any other suggestions to get around this? In the meantime, I have to set this from another computer, where this is not the case.

I also might mention that although my availability is supposed to be set for 24 hours, many times I have to re-set my availability within the same 24 hours period. Usually I have to do this 2 or 3 times. I'm not sure if this is a bug or what, but I was under the impression that once I set this, it should stay for 24 hours.

Thanks.

What browser do you use? Oct 5, 2005

Hi,
I don't know about IE, but e.g. in Mozilla there is a setting to kill pop-ups unless the site is on the approved list. Perhaps you need to check the settings in your browser.

I can't answer about the Availability timing - it seems to me that it is set for a whole week?

HTH,
Magda

Weekly availability Oct 5, 2005

Hello,

You're suppossed to update your availability every week, since you're a platinum member.

As for the pop-up, are you positive it's McAfee that's been blocking the pop-up?, I also have McAfee Spamkiller installed and never experienced that problem. Maybe it's you're browser or any other pop-up blocker you have installed in your computer.

Good luck,

Claudia

Thanks for the reply. I haven't had this happen on any other site. When the pop-up does appear, it actually says that it's a site blocked by McAfee Spamkiller. Not sure why, but it just started doing it within the past week or so.

I'm a Community Platinum member, so I think for me it's still just 24 hours, since I am not "full" Platinum. Either way, it doesn't even stay set for 24 hours, for some reason.

As far as the McAfee Spamkiller, the pop-up actually appears but says that it can not view the site because it's blocked by McAfee Spamkiller. It's strange, because I don't have that problem with any other pop-up, I didn't have that problem with this before just a few days ago or so, and I can't get rid of that message, no matter what I do.
