    Hi, and as always thanks for all that You do to help the rest of us.
    Just wondering...what caused Sunbelt-software.com to be added to restricted sites list.
    I read their Winxp forum and was just curious.

    TIA... ...hangman

    ps: I wrote to You previously from another forum but did not receive a response

    Thanks for asking about that one. It looks like this is a case of mistaken identity. I mistook ihatepopups.com (and its parent company sunbelt-software.com) for ihatepops.com, which has been behind a recent spate of pop-ups (gotta love those kinds of companies).

    This mistake will be corrected in the next release of IE-SPYAD and AGNIS, when ihatepopups.com and sunbelt-software.com are removed.

    Best,

    Eric L. Howes

    How absolutely refreshing - someone makes a simple mistake, owns up to it (publicly, no less) and promises to (and no doubt will) fix it - without excuses or trying to wiggle or whine their way out of it.

    It gives me hope for the human race.

    Thanks, Eric - I needed that. Pete
