Error: This website has been reported as unsafe when using Internet Explorer

When viewing various screens on the administrative side of Netcommunity,  you are presented with a Microsoft error screen stating "This website has been reported as unsafe".

This issue only occurs using Internet Explorer 8.
This is due to an issue with Microsoft SmartScreen, which is incorrectly reporting many sites as unsafe.

Alternative Solution:

You can configure SmartScreen Filter not to check websites listed in the Trusted sites zone. By default, SmartScreen Filter checks these sites, but you can turn checking off for this zone by following these steps:

1. Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button, and then clicking Internet Explorer.
2. Click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.
3. Click the Security tab.
4. Click the Trusted sites icon, and then click Custom level.
5. In the Security Settings dialog box, scroll to find Use SmartScreen Filter, and then click Disable.
6. Click OK, and then click OK again.
