Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional for PC
Whenever i type the orkut or facebook address, it would take no time giving the page not found sign and i tried many things.. .. i also checked the internet options and enabling scripting box, but somewhere there's a problem..
Check if you have Spybot installed and if orkut and facebook name is in Host list (advanced interface)
Find your Host file: in XP is C:WINDOWSsystem32driversetc and open it with Notepad:
You get :
# Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
# For example:
# 22.214.171.124 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 126.96.36.199 x.acme.com # x client host
# Start of entries inserted by Spybot - Search & Destroy
127.0.0.1 00 etc.
If your required Website is the list remove it and save the host file.
