The purpose of the software is to keep malware off my computer, not to judge content of websites.

There really is nothing else to say about this. Fucking thought police faggots, I wish they would all die of brain cancer.

Exactly what I was thinking it just annoys me so much all these people and companies deciding what I can and cannot see!

But it might warp your fragile little minds! /s

Seems like everyone is pushing an agenda these days. It's ridiculous.

If he's at work or using public wifi, this may be content filtering set by company policy as part of their firewall, in which case I have zero problem with it. I set up similar content filtering using OpenDNS because monitors could be seen by passing customers.

OP said it was Symantec software downloaded from his cable modem provider as part of their security suite. I would guess he's using the cable connection, but it is possible he's using a portable device on public wifi.

That box seems like an ad. It points to Amazon to sell books. Books can't be blocked, it says.

Any company with symantec as an antivirus needs to put down their IT guy.

Symantec Corporate isn't bad and runs fairly lean on machines. For developers it's a bit whiny though. Because of who I worked for we were allowed to let out user's use a Corporate version at home as well that didn't report to our servers. It was just a firewall, anti-malware, and antivirus. For us it was free since there was a corporate level license that we used (much like Office was free, people up top paid for a license for the entire company to use it). About the only issue we ever ran into was about once every other week a client would stop reporting to the servers and a simple reinstall or reapply of the XML package would fix it.

I don't know any company that's using Symantec Antivirus as their filtering technology -- most prefer other alternatives that happen further down the network instead of on the client's computer.

That being said, I have no problem with Symantec implementing a family package that keeps kids away from hate pages and such, much like porn. I, personally, wouldn't use it... but you can probably turn it off. Then again, if you're using Symantec or McAfee at home... you get what you deserve.

Then again, I don't use av anyways... I use adblockers and disable third-party stuff from auto-loading (namely Java, Flash, and Adobe PDF's). Haven't had an infection, ever.

Fuck this nonsense, it's rarely the IT guy's decision what software is used to perform a particular function.

I'm upvoting this.

This definitely sounds like a workplace firewall, possibly set up using Symantec's enterprise technology. And not "the antivirus product", if it's even possible to draw a line between the two these days.

OP is using Comcast's free antivirus, and this may be content filtering setup by Comcast, but I still don't see how archive.is is using his internet connection to archive the page. Something is fishy, but it's impossible to break the circlejerk and get to the bottom of it.

Thoughts are programs, some of them good and some of them bad. But unlike computers, humans can rewrite their "programs" if they wish.

The only reason I would drop an antivirus software faster is if it failed to block viruses at all. It's my computer, if I want to visit something hateful antivirus sure as hell not going to stop me.
