Go to your file search in the start menu, and look for a file
called HOSTS (there is no file extension). Every instance where
HOSTS is shown, change the file name to "HOSTS.old". Exit your
internet explorer and try again. Should be okay now. Next go to
lavasoft.de and download adaware to clean up any of the registry
junk this file may have caused. Then make a sweep with your anti-
virus just to be sure.
