Default A message to Zack371

Hi there

I was just trying your message down the board about blocking sites using the host file and telling your machine that it is hosted on your own machine. It worked great with a few sites I tried, but when I tested it with this site it didn't work why is that.

Hope to hear from you soon

Hmm, that is odd.

Windows will look to the hosts file and use any entries in there instead of resolving them via DNS. If you had been to first, then made the entry in the hosts file, you may need to reboot. Are you using Windows 98, 2000 or what?? I will have a look at this and see what I come up with. I know WIn9x needs to be restarted usually before changes to the file will take effect. I would make sure you have the spelling correct in the file, then reboot and see what happens. Like I said, I will look at this in the morning and see what I can find out. Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. I was out of town all day unexpectedly today. Anyways, I'll play around with it and get back to you.

I tried it with and it worked fine.

Let me know if you still have problems with it. Actually, let me know either way. I will do whatever I can to try and figure it out.

Best of Luck,
