Help please - my website is being blocked by McAfee

My URL (fordmultimedia.com) is being blocked by McAffee.   I checked the URL through your site, and it indicates that it is "unverified."  Is there a way to fix this?  Is there something that I need to do on my end?  Being blocked is kind of embarrassing to me as it looks like my site is promoting or doing something wrong.  It's a site promoting creative marketing services!  Any help is much appreciated.

You posted to a 3 year-old thread which had been solved so I've given you your own.

I don't see any blocking of the site simply that SiteAdvisor hasn't yet assessed it.

See:  and and of course the FAQ's here:  http://www.siteadvisor.com/press/faqs.html

One of my colleagues who specializes in this may be along soon I hope.

The site is not being blocked by SiteAdvisor, which gives it a Green rating.

Can you provide a screenshot of whatever you see that indicates that it's blocked in some way?

Note that it was grey when I checked, but now green and OK.

This is a type of blocking I am not familiar with so I've moved the thread to Web Gateway, the application cited in that picture you posted. 

Hopefully someone here with knowledge will enlighten you.

It's all in the message, your URL is blocked from the administrator of this webgateway.

I think the url was blocked manually, because your URL reputation is good.

Please contact the administrator of this webgateway.

Re: Help please - my website is being blocked by McAfee

You are correct.  However, it is only being blocked because my site is being flagged as "Minimal Risk" by McAffee.  How do I correct this?  I want to have the same level of risk as the rest of the sites that aren't being blocked.
