As part of my job I listen to conference calls online. Prior with NAV06 or 2008 it was never a problem. Now with NAV09 I am being stopped.
I get a full page warning, even when I click on the "Continue to site anyway" link it just brings me to the following invalid page,
I mostly have this problem in Firefox. IE works sometimes. In IE the times it works it brings up a window to open a file named meta.asx.
Whatever the issue is these are conference calls from public companies and I have to listen to them, they are not viruses or anything bad but maybe something about them kicks off NAV(like the opening of this meta.asx file).
I tried figuring out what to turn off within NAV and for that matter turning off NAV all together and I still could not access the conference call. I can't tell you how much this pissed me off as even if it was a bad site ultimately it should be my decision to go there and pay the consequences. It makes me want to delete NAV.
So can you help me to be able to access these conference calls???
Here is an example:
(on this page click on the Listen to the ongoing live event audio stream link near the middle of the screen, right then I get the error msg).
<<Edit: removed Website link that contains pornographic content>>

Norton AntiVirus does not have Technologies to Block Web Pages, so you must have N.I.S.. To check what Version: Open Norton Product > "? Help & Support" > About.

I took my life in my hands in view of the image you linked to -- or rather the background of its location which seems to be a porn site.
I got no error messages on clicking on your first link and then selecting the Listen to button nor did I using the second link in your message.
I am using NIS 2009 184.108.40.206 .....
So it would seem to be something else?
I've asked for help in view of the discrepency.

question for huwyngr,
which browser are u using? I always have this problem with Firefox but not mostly with IE(actually today is the first time I got it with IE)
With IE it brings up a "File Download" window which includes the option to "Always ask before opening this type of file". So depending on if you have that option checked or not you might not see the window.
I don't want to lose sight of my original issue which is how do I turn this feature off so I can go to a website I choose regardless of what NIS thinks of it?
BTW, I didn't mean to link the pic to a porn site or a site that has porn banner ads. You don't see the banners during the image upload.

I was able to recreate the blocked page behavior you described. I will work with some colleagues to investigate the issue.
In the meantime, as a workaround for the links you have to review, I found the following procedure to work using Firefox using the example you provided.:
1) right-click on the audio link and select "copy link location"
2) open a new tab
3) paste the link into the new tab's address bar
4) edit the URL in the address bar, deleting all text to the left of "web.servicebureau.net" and use the truncated URL
Again, I will try to resolve with my teammates the original issue, but hopefully the workaround will help you for now.

thanks for your help
your workaround didn't work for me, same problem
your 4 steps resulted in the url
in a new tab which still blocked me in firefox

Sorry, I forgot to describe that you should be able to use the "continue to this site" link on the block page and get through. That worked on my Firefox test system.
Also if you are using the NoScript extension for Firefox, be sure to permit "web.servicebureau.net".

Sorry I should have said I was using IE7 and it went just as usual for me ..... It opened WIndows Media Player without asking and started to play -- which may just reflect the settings I have at the moment.
I'm sure you didn't mean to put me onto a porn site! The straitforward method now is to put an image into Your Gallery in Profile and make it Public. Then when you Insert Image you can point it to the image in Your Gallery.
That way it is hosted on the system server and after vetting by moderators it appears -- until that there is a place holder image in your message.
I'm glad to see that a Staffer is dealing with it and seems to recreated it.
