Hi,

For some reason I cannot access spywareinfo.com in my house on any device. The broadband there is through virgin media. I can access it fine on all devices from my work and also if I use my phone as a wifi hotspot.

Is this normal?

We lost the spywareinfo.com domain several years ago when the original owner disappeared and we created another domain to keep the forum going...  The original domain seems to be used largely to promote very dubious programs that are probably more closely related to the things we fight than the things we use to help people...  As nasdaq said, please use the spywareinfoforum.com address to reach us...  It is also possible that malware could have blocked your access to this and other malware fighting forums on your home computer...  If Virgin is not letting you get access, it may mean that they have incorrectly blacklisted us, but that seems unlikely...

Sorry I abbreviated it, I did mean this website. Spywareinfoforum.com. I have tried on all devices so isn't malware. I can try on my phone and it comes up Web page not available, all I have to do is switch off wifi and go onto mobile network and then when I refresh my phone it pops up.

Quick note, I use Virgin Media and it does not block SpywareInfo Forum.
