    Since installing it I am unable to surf to SuprNova.org.

    Why is this site being blocked it seems?

    Anyone else having this problem?
     
  2. Why do you think it's being blocked, coz it's and "illegal" site, it's full of pirated programs. You can go to NIS settings and put it as an allow, coz NIS automatically blocks it

    suprnova.org just appears to be down at the moment, I doubt that NIS is the cause of your problem. :)
     
  4. No i think they do because a friend of mine had NIS as well and it wouldn't let him open packetnews.com it said site forbiden or something like that

    Well I say this, I have Norton 2005 and I have checked out suprnova with no problems. Apparently the site went down a few days ago, its not Norton more probable is the RIAA finally got to them or their server was over loaded and crashed as they have been known to do.

    Well, I',m able to surf SuprNova.org again to a certain extent meaning I can get to the main page but once I try to get to a certain category, I am stopped dead in my tracks.

    I guess it's SuprNova.org going through problems and not NIS 2005 afterall!

    Maybe your file sharing app is eating up your bandwidth. Turn it off.
