    I can load Shields Up in all browsers but Opera. o_O

    I've never had a problem loading Shields Up in Opera. Must be a FP.

    Rather strange, but then these dang computer contraptions can be like that sometimes. As I mentioned, I have v11.62 as well, and it works fine.
    Has to be something on your end...not sure exactly what at this point, other than the 'clear your cache', and other "simple stuff" like that. :)

    Speaking of ShieldsUp, is there any way of disabling the hidden internet server under the File Sharing test? All the tests have passed on my end, except that one. I tried to disable file and print sharing under Windows 7, and this does not do the trick, plus I have Homegroup disabled and administrative shares as well as NetBIOS disabled, but that message on ShieldsUp still shows that it was able to see that hidden internet server is enabled.

    Today I looked in avast! forums, there were a lot of url blocking fp's.

    I tried Opera 11.62 with Shields Up, it's working again!

    The avast! Team fixed the fp.

    The birds are singing and everything is right with the world. :D
