Windows 7: Wife cannot access

13 Jul 2014   #11

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

I never thought about suggesting that you reset your Hosts file to default. Sorry about that as it would have sorted the problem!

All the best!

I believe this is the default config for all Windows versions. I did not have to do this for my Professional version but apparently, the default version for Home is set with a comment. Why? I don't know. Especially since it caused enough grief that we were ready to go out and buy a new pre-built computer.

My wife works at home and travels. She was unable to book flights on many major airline websites, could not update her website, could not update many social media sites, leading to a level of frustration bordering on red-line.

In the future, I will stay away from the "Home" versions of Windows. I built both computers. Hers is the only one with problems -- all software related.
