Why are some of my favourite internet sites blocked?

In that case the immunization has to be undone. To do so run the Start Center and click on “Immunization“. On the navigation bar on the left you can “Undo immunization“.
Please note: Now the bad downloads will not be blocked any longer! You may have to restart your computer. Then try again to open your favourite pages. Do not forget to Immunize again after visiting that page.
