Solved FB & YouTube URL still blocked after uninstalled URL Blocker

March 28, 2012 at 05:24:38
Specs: Windows XP, 2 gb
some service blocks the URL. I am using window xp service pack 3. recently i installed a software named "url blocker" to check its services. I blocked and for testing purpose. later i uninstalled the software but my both websites are blocked.
I have deleted temp files, cleared system registry using norton antivirus, restored system to the past date, flushed dns using "ipconfig/flushdns" commamnd in command prompt, and refreshed my TCP/IP properties.

But nothing worked, please help someone.

✔ Best Answer
I suspect the correct way to uninstall this program would have been to first unblock the sites you blocked and then uninstall the application.

You might try reinstalling the app, check if it still shows those sites as blocked, unblock them and only then uninstall the app. If it doesn't show them as being blocked, block them, then unblock and uninstall.

If none of the above works, or if you'd prefer to do it first, contact the software manufacturer's support and explain your issue to them. They may have a quick/easy fix.

How charged with punishments the scroll,

I am the captain of my soul.

Thanks dear Curt R. i re installed the software only and my both websites are accessible. it is still in my PC. I think there is no need to uninstall that software.

I would have looked in the Hosts file to see if that was how the blocker worked.
It may have simply placed the blocked URLs in the hosts file and left them there after the software was uninstalled.
