Windows 7: Website not loading

03 Jul 2010   #11

 

there you go..when you try google.com, windows redirects the website to 127.0.0.1. this is your machine's IP address.

I do not know about others like runescape etc. if it was added by you, you can leave it. If not, replace your details with mine. Save it, if windows doesnt allow you to save, save to your documents and then copy past it to the orig location.

Once done, you are good to go.

As a aftermath, run a virus scan using MSSE and a malware scan using malwarebytes. This will remove virus or trojans if any. Your computer will be super safe.

Take the following code and copy and paste it into your host file replacing everything. This is the original host file from Microsoft.

Code:
# 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 individual 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:
#
#      102.54.94.97     rhino.acme.com          # source server
#       38.25.63.10     x.acme.com              # x client host
# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
# 127.0.0.1       localhost
# ::1             localhost

The website's mentioned in your hosts file doesnt work unless and until you replace your contents with either mine or WindowsStar's
