    hi guys!
    installed spyblocker 7.2 15days trial. i dont remember if www.w3c.org is the url to Worlwide Web Consortium, i think it used be.

    but now, Mr SpyBlocker says:
    *************************************
    Blocked URL: www.w3.org
    Resource: Default

    This page has been blocked by SpyBlocker due to security
    and Privacy concerns. Some Possible Reasons:

    # Tracks or Profiles you.
    # Gathers Private and Confidential Information from you.
    # Installs software on your machine without your approval.
    # Has Unsafe Content.
    # No Content other than Advertisements and Popup windows.
    # Contains a Possible Keylogger Program.

    If you are sure you want to visit this site, click the link below:
    http://www.w3.org

    NOTE: The above link will open site with a protected proxy. You
    &nbspshould take due care regardless and open this link with caution.
    *****************************************

    sometimes blok this url when using IE, and Mozilla too, then sometimes can go there with mozilla.

    what it is? any idea? cause i used to visit W3C website without any warning...


    best regards my friends

    www.w3.org is in SpyBlocker's hosts file as a blocked url.

    As you can see from the log when you try to go there:

    Why it's in the hosts file I don't know - you can probably find out by asking the question on the SB forum, here: http://spyblocker-software.com/IPB/index.php.

    SpyBlocker was primarily designed with IE in mind (although it works quite well with all three of my browsers here - IE, Firebird and Opera) - but that fact may account for inconsistent results when using different browsers. HTH Pete
