HOLA! I'm new to posting on your forums but yall have helped me alot with some of the crap I got on my PC about 3weeks ago =) I had PestTrap on my system and yall Pwned it 4 me thx =) Any way when I was doing this I downloaded Zonelabs Firewall, Spywareblaster, Avast, AVG and somthing called HOST that i deleted. Well now for some odd reason I cant see any adds on any sight. I know what your thinking "What the [bleep] are you complaing about". Well I go to IGN alot and about 1/2 of there sight is an add =P So Im almost 100% sure this HOST thing I DLed did it but i thought i deleted it. I think that HOST was supose to block a bunch of sights but i thought that cause i deleted it that it would stop sooo.... in short

How do i delete the host anti-add thingy=)

sry 4 being a noob and 4 spelling 4 with a 4 :whistling:

hi there,

If you kept a copy of the original Hosts file it was probably renamed to something like "Hosts.old" and the new one will just be "Hosts". go to c:\windows\system32\drivers\ect. rename th Hosts to Hosts.old1 then rename the original Hosts to "Hosts" with no extention. this should turn of the add blocking from that source.
