Hosts file redirect not working

Hello,

I have been trying for two days to redirect sites I changed the host files and that didn't work I also reset IE and also disabled and reenabled the TCP/IP v 4 & 6. I also change the networks file in the C:/windows/system32/drivers/etc/networks. After all of this and an abundant amount of research but still have no solution.

Thank you for all help in advanced.

In trying to redirect certain sites that I have found my little brother going to on my computer to a site like Google.com but when I put the site redirect in the host files it still goes to said site instead of Google.com

And you set the correct ip address, and followed those instructions exactly and it does not work? Can you post a screenshot of your HOSTs file changes?
