Preferred Solution: Cant view a site (ISP block, Region Block or neither??)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

i'm a first time poster, so if this is the wrong spot please move or delete it if inapproiate.

here it goes, i've been playing English tricksteronline (ETO) since it first came out but in the next few days i'l be moving to Hong Kong for unknown but long time and i know they have there own version of trickser (HKTO) so the hances are they'll block my access to ETO.

my question is, is there a way for me to still play ETO in Hong Kong? any means would be nice, i hate that fact that region will cause me to lose my account with all the work i put in and of course my friends and guild etc...

please, any help will be nice. thank you in advance

A:Tricksteronline region IP block issues


1.) You'll need to contact their support team to see if you can actually play ETO with a Hong Kong ISP.
2.) Theres absolutely nothing you can do if they do block traffic from Hong Kong. You'll have to find a different game.

A:How to block a particular site

Tools > Internet Options > Restricted Sites > enter URL of site you want restricted. Problem is that anyone with moderate knowledge can remove the restricted URL.

A better way is using administration privileges to set up accounts for users of your PC. That way only the administrator can change the restricted sites.

Well most 95% of the sites where you download free movies and free songs have malware .

In XP you can go to the security settings in IE and you should see a button to click on called restricted sites. Enter the URL in there and that site will become restricted.

You can also set up a password on IE settings so that restricted sites can not be removed except by the administrator.

Hi All,

I have posted a thread in Windows Vista/Windows 7 Support forum. However, it seems to be a problem with viruses so Basementgeek suggested to post it here.

The problem is that I couldn't neither access MS update website *.w1indowsupdate.com nor google this keyword.
You can easy relise that I wrote the website address wrong, well, you are right since if I would have written it correctly I hadn't sent this post. It seems that my PC has some kind of malwares which are trying to filter what I type in my browsers and block some particulars sites such as MS update one.

In addition, there is a popup sometimes when I surf internet. The popup says my computer is affected by viruses or something like that. I will make a snapshot and post back once I see the popup again.

Here are what I have tried:

1/ Turned off all firewalls as well as my Avira Aintivir software.
2/ Clear my computer including FF and IE and win's registry with CCleaner.
3/ delete %windir%\Catroot2 folder
4/ I am not using any proxy, all Firefox and IE connect to internet directly and properly.
5/ delete host file in %windir%\system32\drivers\etc
6/ rename SoftwareDistribution folder.
7/ I am able to ping and tracert the MS update website as well as my IDM can download from this website.

hi i want to block certain sites from my computer and the others on the network through one computer using the admin privileges i have how can i do this.

A:Block a site on my computer network

Using ICS:
modem==[B]Primary[/B] computer===router---other PCs
the firewall on the Primary will control access of other devices, but it's a pain to configure AND the Primary must be running for anything else to have Internet Service (including even simple email).

the more typical layout
modem===router --- All devices
is far more practical but only the common router is available for access controls and
with the average home-router, it is limited in the number of keywords or urls that can be managed.

Each PC could have its own system32\drivers\etc\hosts file and block access with
a line per site (meaning everything at a given domain) like

Code: blocked_domain_name
but then you need to update all PCs with every change and recycle the DNS on each machine usingipconfig /flushdns
net stop "dns client"
net start "dns client"​while effective, this technique is all-or-nothing, ie all users are denied uniformily

I am running Win XP, SP3 on a Dell M4300; AVG 8.5 security package. I use SpyBot, Malwarebytes, and Stinger frequently (manual scans only). I run CleanUp daily and Registry Mechanic ~ once a month so there is not much junk on my system. I have recently encountered (within the last week) a browser redirect problem. I run IE once in a while (mostly when MS requires it), FireFox 3.6 most of the time and have been playing with Google Chrome. All three exhibit much the same problem: entering urls directly seems to work fine but clicking on search results often generates a redirect to some other search-like site. Normally if I go back to the original search page and reclick on the target, I get the right site. I have also recently not been able to connect to www.malwarebytes.org It is the only site I know that is valid, but can not connect to it (nor can I ping it). It was an inability to update malwarebytes that indicated that I had this "site block" problem.

I have run every virus checker and rootkit checker I normally use with no problems detected. I checked my HOSTS file, but it looks pristine. I ran HitMan Pro and it indicated that both my DNS server addresses (for wireless card and for Broadband controller) were "unsafe" and "blacklisted". The address in both cases is HitMan Pro also indicated that atapi.sys is a rootkit and should be removed. So far I have done nothing about the HitMan Pro results.

If you want to gain acces, lower your security settings but I don't recommend it. If ESET says it's on a list of dangerous sites, perhaps you shouldn't go. They must have a history of infected videos or something. Sites where people share little videos, like you can find on some porn sites (youporn, porn tube...) may contain malware.

Hello Guys,

I find this to be quite embarrassing, having an issue like this that I can't figure out.

Here's what I can't do.

1. Ping DG (Default Gateway)
2. Ping my IP (
3. Can't access my router via remote, even though its setup to allow it.

What I can do.

1. Access any web page.
2. Ping any website but my own IP/DG.
3. Play games & use the internet like usual.

I've forwarded the ports I use, and allowed all the programs to roll through the Firewall without issues. I'm not sure if my ICMP was disabled on my router, my family currently shut down my computer, so I can't remote in, and work on it.

I installed TeamViewer because LogMeIn isn't going to accept any "Free" connections anymore, and will require a paid subscription. I've got an older version of RealVNC installed, but I couldn't remember my serial key.


A:Ping DG, ftp block/httpd block

Is this from a remote location or from within the local LAN of the router? If remote, when you mean Default Gateway, is that the remote router you are trying to access or the default gateway used to access the internet?

Have you checked that the public IP address is current? Unless you have paid for a static IP address it is very possible for a different one to be assigned via DHCP by the ISP.

The title says it all! Basically, I've been using AdFender (which I believe was recommended by this site) and it was working great. However, it seems that certain sites (like google and youtube) will only load as an https now, even if I'm logged out of the account. AdFender doesn't work on https sites, so now I'm bombarded with commercials and banner ads on videos: It's absolutely terrible!
So, can anyone either:
1. Recommend an adblocker that works on https sites?
2. Tell me how to run sites that default to https as an http?
Thanks for your time!
ADDITIONAL INFO: I forgot to mention that I am using Windows 8.1 and have had this problem on both Google Chrome and Internet Explorer.

Good evening everyone, I have experienced a few occasions over the past 3 days where MBAM Pro will display an OUTGOING block alert while viewing particular posts in an AV forum. (It does not display this alert on every topic post, just certain ones).The IP being shown is: When checking the hosts-file(dot)net site, the RIPE database info shows the address is in Germany, but there doesn't appear to be any known malicious activity associated with this IP.As I understand it, when MBAM generates an OUTGOING block, it means some program on my computer is attempting to access the particular IP address.My question: Why would this be occuring only when I'm viewing certain posts in the aforementioned forum? Since there is no way for me to determine which program on my machine is attempting to access this supposedly malicious site...this is really puzzling to me. (And, yes...I have tried using TcpView, but it's a waste of time and shows nothing). All AV, MBAM, & SAS scans are clean.Any thoughts or ideas on the reason for this activity would be appreciated.Regards,

A:MBAM shows OUTGOING block when viewing a post on an AV forum site??

I've had the same thing happen here when people have added links, signature blocks, or images in a forum posts, profiles and post signatures that MBAM has decided is risky. Doesn't happen here very often, but it has a couple of times to me. It's all in how the link, or image is rendered on the forum.

Thats one explanation I can give. Maybe someone else has more information on other methods.

can region 7 (not selected) DVD player play region (1+2+3+4+5+6) DVD without region changed ?
in other words , does a ALL region DVD appear the same as region free DVDs to DVD players?
i used an old edition of DVD shrink to make some DVD movies before. but later i changed to AnyDVD with DVDclone. AnyDVD told me that the DVDs that were made with DVDshrink has region code locked to 1,2,3,4,5 or 6 instead of being region free. whilst those made with DVD clone, are recognized as region free.
i would like to ask if the DVD region of a DVD player has to be changed to one of the following: 1,2,3,4,5 or 6 when i put a DVD made with DVD shrink into it? given that the DVD player is a new one, not yet played any DVD, which should has a region code of 7 ( not selected). what will happen if i really put one of those DVD made with DVD shrink (with six regions allowed.) into my DVD player? would it just automatically change itself into 1? (because 1 is the smallest but i do not live in US or Canada!) i am so afraid that i do not dare putting the DVD to try it on my own in case it will waste the number of times i can change the region.
can anyone answer me?

what's your advice?? Should i get a new hard drive, make a clone copy with Ghost and flush it on the new drive?

cor I don't like this much... I tried Defragmenting and Chkdsk but both options seemed to stall on the offending sector and the hard disk is making a weird spinning grinding sound when I try getting into Outlook Express.

The pc is running WIN2000 Pro OS, 512MB RAM, ATHLON 2400GHz processor. Used at work, so nothing fancy as graphics card and sound card (both onboard).

Maybe I should have this thread over at Hardware? Not sure.

A:Bad Block

To determine if the HDD id good or not, you may want to run the disk manufacturers diagnostic test.

I keep getting many pop-ups and flashing warnings about bad performance when using some sites eg ti.com [ using Chrome ] - I use Windows 7 Professional 64 bit

I have blocked pop-ups via control panel, set top security etc. and run both Microsoft Security Essentials and Windows-KB890880 malicious software checker - nothing is found [ quick scan, full takes 8 hours ] ]

I get a message stating that I am a BT user and I have NOT blocked pop-ups - ring TOLL FREE etc. etc.

These are driving me mad. Also I cannot seem to download recommended IE 11 [ If that would make any difference ]

[ I have another machine , Windows 7 Home , using IE with Malwarebytes running that doesn't have this problem on same network ]

A:Cannot block some pop-ups

You`ve been invaded, you downloaded something without clearing check boxes, Slow Down

Uninstall Chrome, and use ccleaner to cleanup the registry, remove any chrome folders in program folders x86.

Install and run MBAM.

No way should a MSE scan take 8 hours.

There`s no reason you can`t download IE11 through Windows update.

Go through add remove programs and uninstall anything that looks odd.

Re install Chrome.
