To cut a long story short, I seem to have some kind of Norton DNS things on my laptop and it's blocking all kinds of sites. Content in the UAE is restricted, however this is not the nomal UAE "blocked" page and after reading a little online, it looks like other people have had similar happen to them.

I've never downloaded any norton dns, nor have i signed up for anything and there are no programmes in my list to remove etc.

What' going on? :wacko:

Same issue. Also based in the UAE and I'm experiencing it on both Mac and pc.

Strange thing is that once you delete the DNS address from your settings it works for the website you are trying to access, but as soon as you try to move to another it brings up Norton again ( the address in the settings does not change). All of the above is with my VPN running merrily in the background.

Does anyone have any smart ideas how to fix this?

You are using Norton though and what is your operating system?

For the windows machine run this.. I am looking for something on the MAC.

Please download the TDSS Rootkit Removing Tool (TDSSKiller.exe) and save it to your Desktop. <-Important!!!
Be sure to download TDSSKiller.exe (v2.4.0.0) from Kaspersky's website and not TDSSKiller.zip which appears to be an older version 2.3.2.2 of the tool.
  • Double-click on TDSSKiller.exe to run the tool for known TDSS variants.
    Vista/Windows 7 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • If TDSSKiller does not run, try renaming it.
  • To do this, right-click on TDSSKiller.exe, select Rename and give it a random name with the .com file extension (i.e. 123abc.com). If you do not see the file extension, please refer to How to change the file extension.
  • Click the Start Scan button.
  • Do not use the computer during the scan
  • If the scan completes with nothing found, click Close to exit.
  • If malicious objects are found, they will show in the Scan results - Select action for found objects and offer three options.
  • Ensure Cure (default) is selected, then click Continue > Reboot now to finish the cleaning process.
  • A log file named TDSSKiller_version_date_time_log.txt (i.e. TDSSKiller.2.4.0.0_27.07.2010_09.o7.26_log.txt) will be created and saved to the root directory (usually Local Disk C:).
  • Copy and paste the contents of that file in your next reply.
