Windows 7: Good site returning 404 error

The problem was Comodo service had to be allowed for me to get to web pages.

The result of the Cean Startup process was that Ad Muncher is the culprit. Which is strange, because I've never seen it actually block pages and return a 404 error without any indication that it did so, and because disabling it after startup didn't fix the problem. In any case, I've emailed the developer, who is quick to get on these things. Thanks for your help,

Update: Ad Muncher responded that they are sending a valid HTTP/1.0 request, but the website is incorrectly configured (unfortunately, it doesn't show a contact address). Which raises the question, how is an extension like AdBlocker (Opera) opening the links ok? Beyond my knowledge.

Well, I'm glad you figured it out. Does AdBlocker allow you to add the site to it's exceptions perhaps? So the site bypasses AdBlocker. A Guy

I haven't needed to do anything with AdBlocker; it brings up the links, without ads. For Ad Muncher's travails with frombar.tv, it's not clear how to reach it webmaster or admin, since there is no contact info on the site and email to them bounces.

Well, without filtering there are typically two ads covering the video at frombar.tv, so I wouldn't want a blanket exception.

Is there a good site for advanced questions?
This site is missing forums for advanced questions, like CMD commands. I used google and the best I found was here. I wanted to know my local groups: it had gpresult but not whoami. Even bootsect was missing. I guess the answer is MS Technet or a Win 2008 site, but I'm surprised google came up...
