          The block page probably need to be editted to reset the proper user-defined setting. User-defined variables in a block page are not portable across systems and must be manually re-entered.

          Edit the page and  look for any red entries. Replace them with the proper User-defined. values.


          <b>Detected Category: </b>$18026$<br />


          Change that back to:

          <b>Detected Category: </b>$User-defined.User-Defined.YoutubeCategory$<br />

            the error template is a little annoying. Please remove the "$18026$ (or whatever number is shown in your error template in red). After you did that, click Add->Property. Pick "Antimalware.Infected" and hit OK. Now you should  see $Antimalware.Infected$ as the property added to the template. This is not what we want, so please lick the $Antimalware.Infected$ property. A popup will show up with a drop-down list of all available properties. Choose "User-defined.YoutubeCategory" and click OK.


            Now you should have the correct property added. Save your changes and retry.

              Thanks eelsasser & Andre! its working now!



              I was initially trying to add userdefined youtube category directly but it was not appearing on the html page. When i used Antimalware.infected property first then it worked as expected! veery helpful answer Andre!
