Hi -
There was no mention of anything when I visit the site, and I could access any part of the pages there -

Not sure as to why Umbrella Labs should be blocking anything ??
Do you have any programs related to >> Umbrella Labs << installed on your computer at all ??

Hi Richie

I'm curious. Why do you call that site Umbrella Labs?

The site is http://www.windows7download.com/



or is it that this message is being generated by something called Umbrella Labs?

malware-block@opendns.com<malware-block@opendns.com>;


I guess I'm just wondering...
What is Umbrella Labs?

James

Are you using a proxy service by chance?

It blocks many of my links. It's a real pain in the ass.

That's actually OpenDNS. It's David Ulevitch's company. If he is blocking you from it, I would assume there is a reason. I'm sure they make mistakes but I'd be more suspicious of the site being flagged than OpenDNS.

Do you have OpenDNS or perhaps OpenDNS parental controls installed.

I suspect that the website that is for sale (UmbrellaLabsDOTcom) is a squatter trying to capitalize on this opportunity but I don't know for sure. I've dealt with several squatters for clients so I'm a bit jaded :)

I am the only user of this computer. Please tell me why you would not recommend removing this from my computer. It blocks about 10% of legitimate links.

I wasn't clear :)

I think that you should remove it. It is good for parental control or a public computer. It is not particularly useful for an adult using a home computer though you should have 'safe-browsing' or 'protected-mode' turned on in your browser.

The descriptive video is almost impossible to see. Can you provide a written description of this procedure?

I followed the instructions explicitly. The settings were already set in the manner described so nothing changed.

Hi -
This is the wording quoted from under the pictures shown on the given link -

How to disable and remove OpenDNS (Open DNS)
The only way to remove OpenDNS from your computer and internet browser is to stop using OpenDNS DNS server IP addresses.
1. Click the internet connectivity icon on the task bar, and click “Open Network and Sharing Center” or navigate to Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center.
2. Under “View your active networks” click the option provided for “Connections”, this may either be “Local Area Connection” (if connection is wired), or “Wireless Connections”.
3. The “Local Area Connection Status” window pops up, click “Properties”. (Please note this window will detail if IPv4 and IPv6 settings are in use)
4. Double click “Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)” (or highlight and click properties) to open the Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) Properties window.
5. Under the “General” tab where it says “Use the following DNS server addresses:” remove the OpenDNS IP addresses (common OpenDNS addresses are 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220).
6. Now select Obtain DNS server address automatically.
This will erase the OpenDNS DNS server IP address from your system and your computer and internet browser will function normally.
