I have XP Pro.

I've used the etc folder for a p2p program and when I was having a problem with the program, I may have deleted it along with the program, but I can't say for sure. I do know that I used to have an etc folder because it was where I saved the host file for the program.

well, that was an odd thing to do....

well, you can leave as is, or you can download and unzip the following ETC folder and place it in that driver folder.

It is filled with the default files (which are not really used unless you are customizing a network), plus a modified HOST file to block unwanted ads

just uncompress and drop the etc folder in DRIVERS
