OK -

I posted this problem I am having and I received no responses. I thought perhaps I had not explained well enough so I am attempting a second post in hopes of assistance!

As I had previously mentioned, in normal browsing, I am getting blocked from entering sites I have had access to before (non-porn!). I will also see this "message" in odd places, such as in place of ad banners within my email account. I was attemtping to access a friend's MySpace page and was blocked access when I have had access in the recent past. Now... I do not have children in my home so blocking any site would not be an issue. Also, I have tried to adjust my internet security settings to no avail. There is nothing that I can do to eliminate this block. If this is my computer and I am the Administrator, I wouldn't have blocked my own usage. I guess I am asking if there is a virus or malware out there that would be blocking me from free browsing? Here is an example of the message:

Access to the page: http://(etc... this can vary but this was a MySpace page) has been
denied for the following reason:
Weighted phrase limit exceeded.
You are seeing this error because what you attempted to access apprears to contain;
or is labeled as containing, material that hs been deemed inappropriate.

I purposely attempted to access a site that I knew would be blocked and another block example I received is "Banned regular expression URL found". All other wording is the same. I changed my security settings for content to the lowest setting (allowing pretty much everything) and I am still getting blocked under normal browsing situations. I don't know why nor do I know how to control this. I don't know what program is blocking me. That is also why I am thinking that perhaps my browser may have been hijacked. Please... a little input!

Much appreciated!

Hi Mo_reen,

Have you checked your Firewall settings?

Read up on the Guide to what the DansGuardian Blocking Messages really mean.

Scan your computer with Ad-Aware and Spybot - Search and Destroy

Download Ad-aware SE and update it (the Globe icon, then Connect). Then click on Perform Full System Scan. Uncheck Search for negligible risk entries and click on Next. Eliminate all that Ad-aware finds.
Download Ad-Aware SE

Download SpyBot - Search and Destroy and install the program. After installing the program, click on Search for Updates and download what the program finds. Click on Search & Destroy and on Check for problems. Delete what it finds.
Download Spybot - Search and Destroy

Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
