Hi All
I use cashback sites when looking for a bargain but recently can't access shopbots (ie Kelkoo, Shopping.com) from their links. If I put the URL in manually it works. It is the same on both Firefox and IE. I've tried a system restore to before the problem started but to no avail. Any suggestions gratefully received.
What a shame the weather's so lousy for the Bank Holiday!!!

Could be a problem with your hosts file. Search for a file called hosts - no extension - and rename to hosts.old

Not sure why you can get it one way but not another...

You're a star - that worked. There were 2 files called Hosts - I changed them both. Many thanks.
