Your ISP probably assigned an IP to your router/modem that belongs to a class of IPs that previously did bad things like spamming, or maybe that IP class belonged to some other country and your ISP bought the IP class and decided to use them where you're located.

 

If your IP is somewhat static (doesn't change every time you connect to internet), you could try powering off your router/modem for a period of time, let's say 1h  but most likely it would take more time (i'd say leave it unplugged over night) in the hope that after some time, your modem/router will receive a new IP.

Ok i will try that....Of course I will because it's useless plugging in

You could also have a virus in your PC, unrelated to your Tom's ban, which might be the reason why you can't view many sites.

If you view pornographic material with pop-ups, or free movie sites, it's common to get viruses these days. Make sure your PC is clean, get MalwareBytes and do a scan offline. If you find anything, best off reformat your PC.

Afaik this forum has no affiliation with the Toms Hardware community so complaining here will have no effect on your ban there. If you want clarification on your ban there then I suggest you go ask their mods and figure out their procedure to contact them and appeal 

Yeah that doesn't work in the slightest with Toms Hardware. First of all, TH mods will ban you for not agreeing with them, or for downvoting any of their stuff. Second, when you do get banned from TH, they issue an IP ban which makes appealing the ban or contacting them in ANY way entirely impossible. You can always use a VPN to subvert the ban, create a new account that way and then appeal the previous ban, but that will be responded to with TH mods banning that account. Becoming a Toms Hardware mod takes nothing. You ask, prove you're competent enough to read and write, and they allow you to be come a mod. More than that, mods themselves are getting kicked off TH constantly because 99% of them are in fact trolls who have no business being mods. As far as I'm concerned, Tom's Hardware is just a bunch different levels of stupidity all stacked on top of each other. There is no accountability there and absolutely no justice. You ask a question, a user craps on your post with unrelated nonsense, you call them out for it, a mod steps in and agrees with them, you call the mod out on it, he IP bans you. That is basically how TH really works. If you're the kind of person that actually refers to other people as noobs or s- like that you really have no business being on any forum let alone the internet. My only real regret concerning Toms Hardware is that there isn't any way to keep them in check or to report them as a website when s- just blows up in total chaos and complete injustice for the use of the website. I was a member there for 7+ years when some troll mod crapped on a posted question I asked. I requested that he remove his post because his comment was unrelated and unwarranted. He banned me for that. It is entirely unprofessional Tom's Hardware should be either taken down or completely re-managed.

I cannot disagree with that in any way.

My idiot friend Abused to a person in private 

Huh? 

 

Most effective way to get unban is get down on your knees and beg the mods for forgiveness. Admit you were a total idiot and ask for a second chance.

"My idiot friend" == the OP, they just don't wanna admit it publicly, so they blame a "friend"

"Abused to a person in private" == sent something abusive -- insults/whatnot -- in private messages to someone else
