I have been struggling for the last two days to find out what is causing the blocking of click here from my win XP sp2 computer. Everything I check is OK but when I click to get to pcadvisor it says that it cant find server....page cannot be disclosed !Does anyone have any suggestion as to what in the world can be blocking this. I have made a restore point to the 31/12/05 when I had normal acces to pcadvisor but in vain.Please help.

I have just checked your link and pcadvisor is spelt incorrectly rectify the spelling and type in to the url box

yes it works OK on this win98 computer but on my win xp it is hopeless. The spelling I use is correct pcadvisor

If you hover the cursor over your 'click here' you will see it is mis-spelled. If you click on it you will get an error.

Try cleaning out temporary internet files click here

If that doesn't work, find the file

c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

and rename it to hosts.txt then restart your PC.

I uninstalled Nortons NIS 2005 on 31/12/05 and installed AVG but then I also installed Cybersitter a parental control and I think that this caused the trouble. Although I uninstalled Cybersitter, I am still getting this blockage.

Ah! Other thread click here

I cleared all History, Tempfiles and all cookies but still no joy so far

Try the hosts file - that might be how Cybersitter works.
