    NetSweeper .. anyone else exepriencing issues with it checking sites recently?

    Morning All

    Is anyone else having problems with NetSweeper not categorising sites? I'm trying to access a couple of sites, that it had check previously, but it is rechecking them and has been doing for 30mins or so.

    I've e-mailed the filter team, but with no reply as yet, so just wondered if anyone else was having problems?

    (one of the sites is Olivetti Support :: Products for Home, Office and Retail, the other is the download site for FileZilla -weblink http://d10xg45o6p6dbl.cloudfront.net...in32-setup.exe)

    Yep exactly the same here. Have called Westfield and they said alot of people have informed them about it (so it's a county wide issue).

    I've just come off the phone to them and they have said this is expected behaviour - I think we're all doomed anyway up in Lancashire!!

    NetSweeper seems to be back on form today, its scanning pages rather quickly and gives a yay or nay in under a minute
