    Hi Eirman,

    I am not overly familiar with the Comodo firewall, though if I were trying to block access to a single site/sub domain I would edit the hosts file (I am assuming that you are doing this on Windows) to send any such requests to the loopback address.

    Just add:

    Thanks, I already have it listed in my hosts file (along a load of stuff put in there by spybot s&d)

    Comodo is rated as the the best free firewall available, so I'm sure some here uses it to it's full extent. It's a complicated piece of software.
