I am sorry to bother this forum with a non windows problem but I don't know where else to turn.

#1 I installed AVG 9.0 freeware and they brought with them an unwanted Yahoo search function which I am unable to un install.Twice I have tried to solve this problem by joining the AVG forum and twice they have directed me to their Russian language version of the forum.

#2 I am trying to contact a forum for the bit torrent client ''' Deluge "". I am a member of this forum and have contacted it many times over the last few years at this bookmark:


#3 When I try this now Yahoo says its not there. Google says it is! It seems that Yahoo is blocking it on my computer.

Can someone please try to find out if it is still there?

According to http://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/

It's not just you...


EDIT: When I try just the root URL of forum.deluge-torrent.org/ I get a 'Could not locate remote server' error

According to the whois data, the domain expired on the 8th, and was automatically renewed by the registrar. on the 10th. They may be migrating hosts or their DNS entry hasn't been updated. For example, my DNS server does not have an entry for this domain, whereas NS1.AUTH.OSUOSL.ORG does (but the IP is unreachable)
