      There is a lot of rubbish going on at the moment. I just searched for Depositfiles and the results cam up with one site. Clicking it redirected me to another:

      DepositFiles

      Redirected to:

      DepositFiles

      I don't know if this is the cause, but check out the news story I cross posted here:

      I don't think so. I have managed to download the example file from here - DepositFiles

      thx for the quick responses, thankfully it has not, someone was saying blocking is virtually impossible by an isp but I don't about that,

      I seached some forums and someone suggested sing https:// as a prefix, this almost fixed the problem I then cleaned out my cookies cache, and now it is working fine again

      It is entirely possible for the ISP to block any site. They have already blocked several file sharing sites, no doubt they will get round to this one eventually.
