PC question, PC is blocking webpages..?
« on: March 26, 2008, 09:01:23 AM »
Why and how do i fix my PC from blocking Audiworld? It has worked fine till a couple days ago and now audiworld just doesn't load. Every other page i normally visit works, but not this one?

I am running Norton 360 with the fishing/fraudulant website protection turned off. Been running this for 2yrs and no issues till now.

Any suggestions on things to check?

Thanks

have you tried clearing your cache to make sure there are now AW corrupted pages in there?

You may have had your browser or DNS hijacked by malware/spyware/adware.  Some sort of 'ware.  Tre Ad-Aware or spybot if clearing your cache does not work.

I assume you are running XP and IE7?  Let us know what software/hardware you are running. 

Try adding AW to your trusted sites - it's in the menu under Tools, and you can find instructions via Google.  Also to see if your DNS has been hijacked go to Start->Run and type in "cmd" to open a command prompt.  Then type "ping audiworld.com" - it will not send a reply because they have that turned off/blocked at a firewall but you should get an IP address of 67.201.16.63.  If that comes back then your DNS is ok. 

I would suspect Norton360 or IE7 is blocking a script or something coming from the page.  Do you use any other browsers like FireFox?  It may be something to look into because I (and many others) consider it superior to IE.

Thats a couple of things - other than that there are a few things with 360 you can check out, or you could check the IE event log if you have IE7.

thanks for the help guys. I tried pinging AW and it came back 'cannot find the page'. So it looks like it is being blocked by my PC. Yes i am using IE7

I ran Ad-ware (free version) and new updated Spybot amd found a few things. But with no success on piging after either. I also cleaned all the cookies, saved files (same as cache?)

Grab HiJackThis here:
http://www.spychecker.com/download/download_hijackthis.html

Run the program, then you can probably analyze what's being ran. If you wanna send me a PM or copy and paste what the scan says, I can help analyze too.

The ping will fail, because they have IMCP (aka ping) blocked on a firewall.  But you can see the IP address your computer is attempting to ping and it should be what I typed above.

Yeah good suggestion on HijackThis - I use it a lot.  It's pretty advanced, though so if you are not sure of the results run a scan and copy/paste the log it prints out - we can scan the results and see what should or should not be running.

This look suspect:

O20 - Winlogon Notify: !SASWinLogon - C:\Program Files\SUPERAntiSpyware\SASWINLO.DLL

It's malware/spyware...maybe something that SpyBot removed?  Check that box next to that and remove it.

And you have too many browser toolbars that have pop up and hijack controls (get rid of all of them if you can) - Google, Yahoo can cause problems especially with 360.

The rest looks OK - anyone else chime in?

Surprisingly, SAS is a legit spyware remover, though it certainly sounds like something that would cause more harm than good. the log actually looks really clean, the only thing I can guestimate on might be Symantec is blocking it through its own firewall. I don't know about what version of that you have, but you may want to go into its control center and look for some options for blocked sites.

I like Dell comps, especially like the XPS that you have, but I have developed a hatred for any involuntary installed software; may it be malware or factory installed.

PS, upgrade your Java and get Firefox. It'll save you much headaches.

Regardless if SAS is legit or not, more than one program can cause problems especially with 360.  Between all the toolbars and tools like SAS there must be some conflict.  I don't know why on AW, but I do see a bunch of JavaScript and 360 (or another) may be blocking a script from running.  I would say go back to using only 360 and get rid of the toolbars - see if AW runs, and reinstall them if they are not the problem.

They get installed as 'companion' software with other programs that are installed, and maybe even are on the OEM Dell XP install.

You should be able to remove them by going to Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs

Find them in the list, left-click and hit the Remove button.

You probably won't be able to remove the 360 toolbar, so I would leave that as is.
