Settings > Antivirus > Scans and Risks Tab > under Exclusions/Low Risks select the one that applies to what you are trying to do > Configure.

I would also suggest not using your email address as your user name.

Hello

If you mean you are getting notices for sites that are malicious, if you list them, then I can have the Safe Web Team check them out. Why are these sites being blocked?

Thanks.

No, not a malicious site, but the SSA (Social Security Administration).  IsItDown.com says that it's working, and so did a tech rep for Norton (working for their computers, so it must be a server where I am, the Philippines.  I was in the U. S. about three weeks ago, and could navigate to it fine.  This will take some digging :(

Hello

It probably has to do with US security since you are trying to contact a US Government site. They are probably afraid of hacking when phone calls come from outside the USA for SSA. Probably one of Obama's rules. See if this issue continues and see if you can get to other US Government sites perhaps. You could also try different DNS servers.

Thanks.

Yeah, likely you're right.  Between Obama and all of his Progressive comrades, expatriates--whether short- or long-term--aren't treated as citizens at all.  As for other .gov sites, that's affirmative, particularly the IRS!  It's going to take some trial-and-error rigmarole on my part.  Just three weeks ago I was in North Carolina visiting my brother, and had no difficulty getting to any government site!
