I am having the same issue. The problem was stated in the first post. It has nothing to do with the website being blocked. The problem is when you go to start the Curse Forge application, the loading screen gets stuck in an infinite loop until the adaware software is turned off. Once the Adaware software is turned off, then the curse application loads almost immediately after. I don't like that I have to turn off a form of protection from virus and malware just to be able to play a certain game on my PC. If you need any more information regarding how to recreate this I will try to let you know anything else that I can.
