Getting "Illegal HTML" messages when trying to post?

2008-06-21, 0:35 AM
I recently installed SuperAdBlocker, an anti-malware and popup blocker. The program works as promised and quite well. Some time after the installation I tried to post an item to the T6x board. I could not post and the Lithium software that powers the board returned a message in red letters that the post contained illegal HTML code. I tried writing the post in Notepad and then copying and pasting it into the message but still got the red warning.
I began a trouble shooting tree and someplace down the trunk I got to "What's different since you last tried this?". Well the only thing different was the new popup blocker. I tried a new post and got the same result. Then I added http://forums.lenovo.com to the "safe list" in SuperAdBlocker and the problem went away.
I don't know why, probably because I don't understand the underpinnings of Lithium, but the solution worked and I figured I should share it in case others encounter this problem
Solved! See the solution
