I use Spybot to block unwanted advertisements and understand that once you block a site there's a possibility that you might also be blocking sites that you want to access. I'd appreciate it if someone could check these links (that I can't access) and tell me if they are truly dead links or if my blocker program may need to be adjusted.

Last three are ok... Mar 6, 2004

Hi Kim,
The first two links are broken, so I only tested the last three - all of them work ok.

I use MSIE 6.0 SP1 on Win2k Pro SP4 - mobile web access (3G).

HTH, Ralf

first 2 are ok too Mar 6, 2004

the first 2 links are fine too - you just need to remove the space before abstract and NNW92RandolphCelebration.htm respectively.

Gracias Ralf and Roberta! Mar 6, 2004

Thanks for checking them for me. I went into Spybot and restored all my blocks and now I can access these sites too. Now I've got to figure out how to get rid of the bad guys without killing off the good guys.
