This blocker for gambling sites is on my machine but it is freezing 85% of other sites accessed.  NOt sure if pop ups are triggering it but it is very annoying.  Have seen other solution posted by merete and sily burrito but cannot seem to get that to work on my machine. It appeared that sites would have been listed on restrictied tab in security settings but when i go there nothing there for me to delete.  Cab anyone help?

Hi ATalbot,

What blocker is it, and more importantly, can you uninstall it totally?

so web surfing is the only thing that is slow?


like redsea says, can u be sure that THIS blocker is the cause of the problems by disabling or uninstalling it?

Like John says (uninstall those other things too)

clear cache/temp internet files as well....

what vs OS u have, and what vs browser?

I'm afraid if you have the blocker installed in your system, the only way to remove it is to reformat. Once installed it can not be uninstalled nor reversed:

 I am sorry, but once you have installed the blocker there will be no, I repeat NO! uninstalling it. There are plenty of ways to stay in contact with friends from school. Gambling is not one of them. Go play a round of golf or go fishing. Quit gambling!
Thank you <<<

did you remove any toolbars.. like yahoo (this may be a result of the freezing).... what did you try from the solutions above?

can you try a different browser? such as mozilla, netscape or opera?
