i can connect to all sites except mininova
Maybe the site is down temporarily. How long has this been going on?
it' about 2 weeks now, other people i know connect to the site
are you typing the address directly (http://www.mininova.org/), or clicking on a link through another site? Perhaps your ISP is blocking access to it for some reason? You might want to try OpenDNS and see if that fixes it for you.
It's probably blocked. It's a torrent site. My anti-virus gave me a warning message of some malware at the site.
what is ISP AND and openDNS
WHAT is ISP and openDNS I,'m new to this
Sorry! ISP = Internet Service Provider (such as Comcast, Verizon DSL, etc.) This is the company that provides your internet service. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_service_provider
Never mind about OpenDNS; i was thinking of proxy servers instead. OpenDNS probably cannot help with this problem. Not sure if a proxy server can either (i am not very familiar with them so i can't explain much).
have you tried accessing other torrent sites, like http://thepiratebay.org/ ?
did was perform a disk clean up . . . no access to mininova
did a system restore . . .no access to mininova
am able to access other torrent sites such as piratebay, isohunt etc
tried accessing mininova through a third party ....that didn't work.
my internet supplier isn't blocking me.
any other suggestions? thanks in advance.
This might sound silly but do you have a block on your internet explorer for Mininova specifically? Are you using Internet explorer or Firefox?
i tired accessing the site using both, but no such luck. And no it does not appear to be blocked.
btw...here's my logfile. hope it helps.
Maybe try disabling your antivirus temporarily, and see if you can access it then. If so, there may be a way to add the site as an exception to your antivirus program.
Have you tried using alternate browsers, such as Chrome or Firefox?
Can you post a screenshot of what you see when you try to open mininova? With your browser window active, press Alt+Print Screen, then open Paint and press Ctrl+v to paste the image, then save the image and attach it to a post here.
Also, this probably has nothing to do with your issue, but i would uninstall any of those toolbars you don't actually use, They all slow down your browser, and some toolbars have spyware and upload your browsing history and system information.
Actually he has Malware stated in his (old) HijackThis log
You will need to uninstall the old version of HijackThis program you have, then create a new thread in Virus & Malware removal forum, after first running through this guide: UPDATED 8-step Viruses/Spyware/Malware Preliminary Removal Instructions
Fix for the problem.
This is a link that explains what happened. I have the same problem and was able to access it using ]ww*w.hidemyass.com So I new it had to be a problem with my browser/ settings. Read the link above and follow the instructions to fix the problem.
