    "Suspicious little piece of software"

    September 14, 2011  |   By daelkor

    Version: URL Blocker Verion 1.0

    Pros

    it goes straigh to the point, block X URL for X time, that fine so far.

    Cons

    Cant delete an URL, I added one to expire in one year, what now?
    If messes with the HOSTS file, but with an external IP which under the wrong hands could be hijacking, tracking information and even whorst, pretending is X site to get your info.

    Summary

    Wouldn't be easier to use 127.0.0.1 as the destination IP instead of a "who knows" whos ip?

    "THIS PROGRAM IS A DISCRACE"

    September 28, 2009  |   By jm19667

    Version: URL Blocker Verion 1.0

    Pros

    There are no pros for this virus

    Cons

    It takes over on starting the computer and has very liittle functionality. You can not uninstall either.

    Summary

    To get rid of this program do the following. Open 'Windows Task Manager" (Ctrl+Alt+Delete) Look at top of the task bar and choose "Processes" look down to an 'Svc Host. exe" file using about 1,766 K. With the task manager still open go to your "C' drive and open 'Programs' folder, look for Url Blocker folder and open. Click on svc host icon in that folder should be an orange and blue icon. Open and close url blocker and watch the value on the particular svc host. exe go up and down from about 1,766 K to 768K on the far right of the task manager panel. When you are sure you have the right scv host highlight it and press the 'end process' task button on the right lower corner of the task manager. You have now stopped the svc host for url blocker and you can close the url blocker folder, right click the mouse on the url blocker folder and delete it. When you restart the computer Url Blocker should be absent. BEWARE THAT YOU STOP THE CORRECT "SVC" HOST" AS DESCRIBED OR YOU WILL CREATE MORE PROBLEMS TAHN YOU SOLVE. Happy computing.

    "Terrible -- Trashes Host File Entries"

    May 15, 2009  |  

    Version: URL Blocker Verion 1.0

    Pros

    waste of bandwidth and time to download this.

    Cons

    Uses hosts file to block URL access (very weak scheme ... use notepad to defeat) ... trashes all the other entries in the HOSTS file (for those of us using HostsMan).

    Summary

    You need to go to their website and download a separate program to remove the application (unless you're smart enough to use GoBack when testing new software)... trash like this should not be allowed in download.com ... essentially it's a program to make timed entries into the hosts file ... when the time is up, it removes the entry from the hosts file. big deal.

    "Buggy to the Extreme!"

    January 30, 2009  |   By HillbillyJames

    Version: URL Blocker Verion 1.0

    Pros

    Great idea. I could really use a program like this if it worked.

    Cons

    On my Windows XP machine, it gives "I/O" error messages constantly, though still seems to function. On my Vista machine, it won't load properly at start-up, won't kill, and won't even uninstall with the separately download-able uninstaller!!!

    Summary

    A complete nightmare. I have no idea how to get this thing off my Vista machine now. Whether I try and use the actual program or the uninstaller, it just gives an error message stating that I don't have permission. And in the meantime it barrages me with constant error messages of its own just from running in an improper state on the taskbar (it won't even load into the system tray on Vista like its supposed to.)
