    Working fine here too. This may help you in the future to test dead sites.

    Check PeerBlock if your using it, and try an online proxy.
    For me it works fine. Clear browser cache if necessary.

    @0strodamus

    Just tried again with the same result, but your useful link :thumb: says it's up too. Not sure why i can't reach them right now, but will try later.

    Good to know they are still there :)

    Thanks all :thumb:

    It's not just http://www.zemana.com i can't reach directly, but also http://www.rikiott.com

    Tried several times yesterday to get there with no joy, but thought it must have been a temporary blip at their end. Obviously not, stranger and stranger :(

    Could reach via Proxyeasy though, so ?

    How is this Zemana Antilogger? Experience folks? Is there better ones out there? Free ones? I've never used something like this and thought I might give it a try. Went to their web site and it looks like a pretty solid piece of software.

    from my own experience its pretty good and light and does not bombard the user with overwhelming amounts of trivial popups that ud get with a regular HIPS.

    I used it for a while, until one day it was preventing certain Windows Updates from installing. I had to figure out myself that it was Zemana doing it and that took quite a damn long time.

    Although the specific bug was fixed, it showed me that it can prevent my system from function WITHOUT alerting me, and happen again in future, this is what made me remove it. Anything that has this potential is trash to me.

    On Topic: Have you tried reaching the website via a different DNS provider like OpenDNS?

    any security software considering how low level hooked into the system it works has the potential to do that...

    No 64-bit support it seems, so no go for me...I'm trying Keyscrambler as we speak. Seems to be decent.
