Hello,

I recently put a new thread in the website Seven Forums. I now find that I am unable to access it at all. I just get the 'this page can't be displayed message . Is HostsMan to blame? I looked on the Host item list and could not find Seven Forums on the list. What to do?

Anne

It's not HostsMan, no. The site was added to hpHosts;

Hello Steven,

Am I to understand that I am being redirected to a third party when I try to access Seven Forum?

Also, a bit off topic for this thread, I have lost important graphics at http://www.weather.com. I have been away from my machine for a couple of days. I can't see my hourly weather temperature reports. What to do?

Anne

Update- I think I managed to remove www.weather.com from the list. The graphic are back.

Not quite, no. But they're involved in the deception of their users, to lead to third party rubbish without disclosure, and such that is not good for ones systems.
