Phild31,
Thanks for the photo size info.

And just to update--- From the SmartScreen warning that I was receiving in IE, I was able
to submit a dialogue to Microsoft stating that it(magicmaps.ca) was actually a safe site and now it has been removed from their filter.

Yes I have it on but I must have over rode it months ago for the MagicMaps site.
And I usually use Fire Fox instead of IE.

Like I said, I've had no problems of any kind with that site.

BTW, any photo can't be over 400x400 pixels on the forum.
I always convert JPG & PNG picture files to GIF and resize them to load to the forum.

When in trouble or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout

Thanks for the response, phild31.

I have been using magicmaps for a couple of weeks also without any warnings or issues.
I haven't updated the browser or it's security settings.
It is Internet Explorer 9 with the Smart Screen Filter turned on.
The smart screen definition files at Micosoft must have changed to now include this as a compromised site.
Do you have the filter turned on with your IE browser?

I've been using http://www.magicmaps.ca for months with no problems of any kind.
So I just went there with Firefox and Internet Explorer and got no warnings.

If you have updated your browser or it's security settings since the last time you went to that site you might get that warning.

This morning while attempting to launch http://www.magicmaps.ca I get a
security warning from Microsoft explorer smart sreen filter indicating
that this website is unsafe and reccommending not to continue on to it.
Not sure if this is the appropriate category to post this in.
Anyone else have this experience or any indication of a problem here?
