    NOW...I DON T KNOW IF THIS 2 IS CONNECTED ,BUT AFTER THE INSTALLATION OF THE PROGRAM I CANT VISIT A SITE A HAVE PAID FOR.IT S A BIG,VERY WELL-KNOWN COMPANY AND THIS SITE IS A TOOL FOR MY JOB.WHEN I TRY TO LOG IN, IT GETS ME TO ANOTHER PAGE WHICH SAYS THAT A PROBLEM OCCURED OR IT DISCONNECT ME FROM THE SITE .I SEND A MAIL AND TODAY I RECEIVED THIS MAIL : We are sorry for the difficulties you encounter to visit http://www.artprice.com

    Hi Jenny, I moved your post to a forum that may give you a better response.

    BTW Please do not use capitol letters as it is deemed as shouting. :D

    Yes Jenny, that is a restricted site as defined by SWB.

    edited: nope, more likely IEspyAds

    OK... to fix it, you can look in SWB IE's Restricted sites listings and UNcheck it.... if you can find it... I did not bother to look as I check IE's Restricted Sites first.

    could not find it in SWB sooooooo........

    In IE...Tools/Internet Options/Security TAB, Restricted / Sites, scroll till you find it and select it then delete and OK on way out.

    see screenie...

    Cheers, TAS

    btw, sorry, forgot to welcome you to forums.... :)

    I tried going to the site in Firefox, it asked to accept a cookie, I denied, then I checked with IE and sure enough I saw the 'red' Restricted Site Icon in IE's window so checked IE's Restricted Sites listings first.

    I just checked SWB's listings, and cannot find it there, but it must have listed it under a general name, as I did not put any sites' in my restricted list apart from SWB's.

    Cheers, TAS

    edit: The only thing I could see in SWB relating to "art" were these two entries.

    Coolwebsearch... hmmmmmm...... source of your problems?? I honestly do not know that site artprice.com.... but to have it listed in Restricted Sites must be a reason.

    It could be an entry from IE-Spyad. ;) ... but none the less TAS's instructions should correct the problem.

    ROFL... arrrgggghhhhhh.... yep.. forgot IESpyads.. yep, I do have that installed... ROFL... see... paranoia can cloud the brain matter dog... *puppy* *puppy*

    Cheers mate and thanks... TAS

    PS: So I guess that makes SWB's question a moot point, but it certainly raises the question of why Eric has it listed...
