For example, to try to block loading anything from excite, I have added http://excite.com, http://www.excite.com, www.excite.com, http://*.excite.com, http://www.*.excite.com, www.*.excite.com, and a bunch of other variations to my excluded URL Filters list.
However, no matter what site I try to download, regardless of how diverse the subject matter (anything from roses to cooking to history to the Vatican, etc.), sooner or later hundreds of pages from excite (or amazon, or adobe, or others) start showing up, and soon the entire queue is all pages from excite (or other such sites).
I have all my settings set to load using URL filters, so no pages, images, text, video or anything at all should be loading from those sites. Yet it happens with each project I try to download. I have already checked my computer for spyware and adware with several different programs, and my computer is clean. I also cleared all the cookies before each attempted download. Other than the "Load using URL filters" settings, I use the OEPro default settings.
Thanks in advance for any advice you can provide.
Make sure you add allowed sites to the Included servers list.
