I have not been able to log into Engage for almost three months now. Don't know why. I get a message suggesting the site ins infected with a virus or something.

That's weird. I find it glitchy, but not like that. I'll tell them

Hello Noga, sorry about that! We are planning a move but it hasn't been a priority (messages like this make me think it should be). Can you tell me the exact alert message? Are you able to access it from other machines? If so I wonder if this is something to do with your anti-virus software and if so might there be away to lift the block?

To the best of my knowledge Engage isn't infected - but it does do some strange things sometimes.

I can access it from my husband's laptop. I think it does have to do with my anti-Virus software but I have been urged not to try to circumvent it. My computer has been viciously assaulted three times before.

There was one time during the last three months that I managed to get through to Engage but it only lasted for an hour, and then the ban was back on!
