Recently but on an increasing rate I have been getting failed to connect warnings when going to sites, but it has not worried me, However today I tied to get to a couple of well known ones, e.g. Plumb World. In that case the failure warning mentioned a third party site, as did the other well- known site. With Plumb World it was “contact23.overture.com.
I am confused why this should be happening but wonder if it has anything to do with WinPatrol that I installed a few weeks ago on the advice of Malware Removal, when I suspected I had caught a bug. I was also advised to replace the standard hosts file with the MVPS one.
Have I been foolish, and what do I need to do to for the failed to connects to stop? If it is WinPatrol that is the problems’ cause, how can I modify the settings, or is it best uninstalled?
