Can't access a website - caused by my ad blocker?

I was able to access advfn.com this morning but then could not. Was able to still access advfn.co.uk this afternoon and then could not.
Can't access either now - just get a white screen.

Am wondering if it could be my spyware or ad-blocker.

The latter is Spybot and it does warn that blocking some ads may also block the host program. Updated it yesterday and ran a scan but it seems strange that the problem did not occur until today.

I can't see any reference to advfn on the logs from these programs.

Any ideas much appreciated.
Cheers
Rick

Just as likely to be cookie blocking that is preventing access - may sites will not load if cookies are blocked.

Thanks Jeffers

I use CookieWall. Have not updated that for a while and cannot see an advfn cookie being blocked. Perhaps it's a cookie for the ad - but how would I know which one?
