Block website

if your using windows then you can do it with the "host file". your computer checks the host file before it goes to a DNS server so if you alter your host file to say in your host file it will never ask the dns and find out its actually and basicly blocks the web site... its really sneaky and impossible for anyone short of a genius to undo.

Can't open a web site.

Hrm ... run a program called malwarebytes. It does a way better job in finding an potential virus/malware on your system.
There is probably a registry that is preventing you from browsing correctly.

Run malwarebytes and hopefully it will alleviate your issue

Alot of times when i open some sites like "youtube

The internet uses something called DNS. It is similar to a phonebook for the internet, except instead of referencing people to phone numbers, it references IP addresses to webpages.
This error means that someone has purposely removed Facebook and Youtube from the listings in that "book" If you are at a school or workplace, you probably won't be able to fix this without help from a system administrator.
If at home, my suggestion would be to try another DNS Server, or "book".
This webpage explains how to set up an alternative DNS Server

Facebook url blocked.. how to unblock

Hello :

Please try this solution here :

A VPN lets you access Facebook from a normal internet connection. It’s a little bit of software that you install on your computer and then run after you connect to the internet. It sends all of your internet information through a different computer (located in the US or UK for example)… Try for more information!
- Proxy
A less elegant option, but just as useful, is to use a web based proxy. There are many of these available, one of the best is ’sneak me’ ( You input the web address that you want to access and then click on ‘OK’ and you can go straight to the site you need.
- Business firewall bandwidth
Some businesses buy bandwidth directly from Chinese telecommunications companies, so multinationals for example can have full access to the Internet without any interruption.


Or you can use Google public DNS .

Watch this video to know how to setup google DNS .!

A site that is blocked.

  • go to start>run>CMD>ENTER
  • from the command prompt type in ping
  • instead of though, type in the address that is blocked.
  • then hit ENTER
  • this will ping out to that site and give you an IP address for that site
  • open up your web browser
  • type the ip address of that website in the address bar where you usually type the address
This will allow you to see websites that are blocked by a simple dns proxy. If you have a different setup or different proxy type, let us know

Open DNS is troubles me when important downloading it is block that sites pl.give me solution to delete or remove the Open DNS

No.1 : If you are on corporate/company LAN, there's nothing much you can do unless you are the system/network administrator. If you are then make the necessary changes in the software at the server level( where open dns and proxy is hosted for access). But beware of your corporate security policies.

No.2 If you are at home or if you have your own internet connection, uninstall or disable open dns and point your system/laptop direcltly to the DNS servers provided by your ISP

Hpg6000 Vista 32 cannot access via browser


This problem usually occurs if DNS addresses are not set-up correctly.
DNS addresses are IP addresses of DNS servers which translates your queries to IP addresses. Like, when you enter in your browser, computer sends this to DNS server, then DNS server gives back information of the address of the site you're trying to visit. Since your computer does not know where DNS server is, it cannot display your web page. Some programs like Messenger and Skype work by quering exact addresses (since they are made to connect to single database on Internet), and that's the reason they are connected to Internet.

  1. Ask your Internet provider for DNS addresses.
  2. Open Start menu and then Control Panel.
  3. Open Network Connections.
  4. Right-click the connection you are using to connect to Internet, and click Properties.
  5. From the item list, choose Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).
  6. Click Properties.
  7. Click Use the following DNS server addresses.
  8. Enter given addresses.
  9. Click OK and then Close.
