Question about Internet & Communication Software
Adsubtract "phones home" everytime it is started. it looks to intermute.com which then refers to store.trendmicro.com (the purchaser of intermute). trendmicro recently changed their website to disable adsubtract (either wittingly or unwittingly)
Here is how to fix:
1) first find your hosts file. it is usually located in C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc
the file is "hosts" and it has no file extension.
2) open the hosts file with notepad.
3) add the following line to the bottom: 127.0.0.1 store.trendmicro.com
Adsubtract will work once again if you follow these instructions, but you will no longer be able to visit the website "store.trendmicro.com" unless you change your hosts file back the way it was.
