  • Hi,

    I need help, what do I have to do?


  • Hi

    the default hosts file(in case you want revert to):

    # Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp. # # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows. # # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each # entry should be kept on an solo line. The IP address should # be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name. # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one # space. # # Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual # lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol. # # For example: # #     rhino.acme.com          # source server #     x.acme.com              # x client host  # localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself. #       localhost #	::1             localhost
