    Having followed all the advice in here , I now can't get onto quite a few sites - and I've no idea which of the things I installed/edited is now stopping me accessing sites.

    Basically when I click to enter a game room (such as spades, on pogo) - I merely get a "Internet explorer was unable to link to the page you wanted" page showing up (with a url such as: res://C:\WINDOWS\System32\shdoclc.dll/navcancl.htm#http://ad.doubleclick.net/adi/pogo....pt=ist;kw=um19;ptile=1;sz=500x350;ord=121850? ) and the room never loads.

    Any idea how to get back what I had?

    Hello,

    I am going to take a guess at this one. My guess is if you installed IE-SpyAd that it may be your problem.

    My suggestion:

    Go to Restricted sites zone of Internet Explorer and check to see if the sites that you want to go to are listed there. You can always remove the site from the restricted zone.

    Or, uninstall IE-SpyAd and see what happens. If you choose to try and uninstall, go back to this page and follow the directions on uninstallling:
