    Why would Avira block this site?

    because this site has had problems with spam ads, viral ads, etc. and the admin likely havent cleared their reputation with that company. Similar to when Google tags a site as a likely malware/virus/phishing injection site.

    I don't have a screenshot stored on my phone, and I made an "exception" on my laptop yesterday (which some users say will make Avira not scan the site) but a page overlay was saying that the site had been 'identified as being associated with spam, viruses, malware, Etc.'

    The laptop runs win 7. Avira will no longer run on xp.
