Hello,
Last week I had a adware.adtomi virus on my computer and I installled cwshredder, spybot search and destroy, ad-aware 6.0
on my computer and the I lost access to this site rpf.prop-planet.com

I think I maybe I checked a wrong box when I installed some software and I need to configure my computer to allow traffic to 66.227.56.249 (rpf.prop-planet.com) The programs I recently put on my computer are cwshredder, spybot search and destroy, ad-aware 6.0 Could any of these be blocking my access to 66.227.56.249?
Thanks

Can't see how you'd get blocked from one particular site. What happens when you try to go to that url? Are your cookies enabled (the url says they must be). If I go to the IP, all I get is one graphic page, with apparently no links into th site.

Blank75,

Search your computer for a hosts file. The file will be named "hosts" with no extension. The hosts file should be in the C:\Windows directory. Open the hosts file with wordpad. Type Ctrl+f to open "find". Type rpf.prop-planet.com in the find field to search the file. If you find rpf.prop-planet.com it will probably be preceded by 127.0.0.1., which is the local host, meaning your computer. To regain access to the site, change 127.0.0.1 to 66.227.56.249 . Or alternatively you can type a # sign to the left of the line, or delete the line altogether as you prefer, and then save the changes.

The other place you want to look at is in IE itself. This is how programs like Spybot will add restricted sites. Actually it's just a simple registry change but easier to get at from IE.
