    Default Aldelphia DL in beta.sbi wrongly flags legit bookmarks

    The latest beta.sbi (2006-13-10)

    Flags three of my bookmarks under Adelphia DL:

    http://users.adelphia.net/~suzshook/8scripts.htm
    http://users.adelphia.net/~suzshook/
    http://users.adelphia.net/~suzshook/10tips.htm

    Suz is a highly respected and experienced user of Paint Shop Pro and these are bookmarks to her pages. They are perfectly legitimate and do not offer/download anything malicious, to the contrary she offers useful tips and scripts for paint shop pro users.

    I rank this as a FP, whatever Adelphia DL is supposed to be.

    It may be my system and/or my ISP, but I am getting "The page cannot be displayed" when I try to access your three (3) references:

    Zenobia, you're right!!!

    I can't get to users.adelphia.net because it is in my HOSTS file. The entry in my HOSTS file was added by Spybot with the 2006-10-13 updates. There are three (3) entries containing "adelphia.net" among the 100 entries added to Spybot's HOSTS file with the 2006-10-13 updates:
    • users.adelphia.net
    • www.adelphia.net
    • adelphia.net

    *************

    ps: Added with edit.

    The same three (3) sites were added to the restricted zone by Spybot's immunization process with the 2006-10-13 update:
    • users.adelphia.net
    • www.adelphia.net
    • adelphia.net

    I don't use Spybot Hosts file (I use mvps.org hosts file); so the sites remain accessible to me.
    I had not noticed that users.adelphia.net had been added to restricted site:

    My question is why??

    Unhappy Just chatted online with ADELPHIA and they will call.

    This is a big problem for millions of adelphia users. As most who use spybot will not know they have 3 new entries in their restricted zones preventing the site from working properly!!

    Adelphia is looking into why they have been black listed.

    I dont have host files checked but adelphia was put in my restricted zone anyway. I cant even access my mail or helpfiles. The only thing listed in my host files says local. Should I remove that? Im so lost.

    If you want to remove the Restricted Zone entries for the following entries:
    • users.adelphia.net
    • www.adelphia.net
    • *.adelphia.net

    Go into Internet Explorer > Tools > Internet options... > Security tab > click on Restricted Sites > click the Sites button > in the Web sites listing > scroll down to one of the entries > highlight it > click the Remove button. Highlight the second entry > click the Remove button, etc. When you are done, click OK,OK.

    I cant find anything in there either . If I unimmunize all works fine. Right now I cant even load my firewall toolbar.

    Yes, the domains in the restricted zone is added by the immunize, the Hosts file does not do that, it redirects a domain to your own PC, hence it becomes unavailable altogether.

    In fact the way the restriction is done is not correct. There is a *Dword =4 in adelphia.net key in the domains key, that makes the two subkeys Users and www redundant (all *.aldelphia.net sites are restricted by that DWord). If the idea was only to restrict www.adelphia.net and users.adelphia.net, then there should be no *DWord in adelphia.net key, only the ones in www and users keys.

    I've noticed a lot of the restricted domain entries from Spybot have the same error. Maybe someone should review these immunize entries.
