Why are some of my favourite Internet sites blocked?

June 21st, 2012

This problem may be caused by the Immunization or the bad download blocker in Spybot – Search & Destroy. Please open the Tools menu in your Internet Explorer and choose Spybot – Search Destroy Configuration. There you will find a drop down menu where you should select Ask for blocking confirmation. If you want to visit a blocked website choose Allow.

If this does not solve the problem, please run Spybot-S&D and select Spybot-S&D → Immunize in the navigation bar on the left. Please click Undo. Then run Spybot – Search & Destroy and switch to the Advanced mode via the menu item Mode. Now select Tools → Resident from the navigation bar on the left. Please untick the checkbox in front of the Resident “SdHelper” (Internet Explorer bad download blocker) active.

But please note: Now the bad downloads will not be blocked any longer! Maybe you have to restart your computer now. Then try again to open your favourite pages. Do not forget to Immunize again after visiting that page.
