Is the "rogue_anti-spyware" website down, or is it just my ISP having trouble?

    You are welcome, too, Bubba. Really appreciate you calling our attention to this thread and the problem. I'm sure Oldfrog will ferret out the problem and take the necessary actions to correct it.

    Thanks for all the concern! It would be helpful to know if anyone is getting anything other than 204.14.90.22 when doing a tracert from their own system. The TLD nameservers are all pointing correctly and the fluidhosting nameservers are both reporting correctly but some systems are resolving to another IP address (also owned by fluidhosting but not correct for SWW).

    Okay, anyone who reported the "Web Utilities" page was getting a false DNS resolution (probably to 66.150.201.81). If you are still having problems it would be useful to know what IP your system is resolving spywarewarrior.com to along with which ISP you are using. Exact nameservers used would be even better.

    Do you mean, you want my ADSL modem IP address? Besides that - Is the name of the ISP sufficient?

    As noted above the problems were directly related to a server migration from one data center to another that those of us onsite this morning were not aware of. At this point all the issues that we observed are explainable in that context and the majority of those issues have subsided. Just so there is no confusion on the IP addresses and resolution the following is excerpted from the host email explaining the migration:
    Our thanks to all who participated here and attempted to assist us in diagnosing the problems.

    Everything seems normal now. I wouldn't have known about this if no one had posted about this, since I've been away all day.
