Open "Hosts" in Notepad. The fact that you also have "Hosts.mvp" is a big
clue that a HOSTS file was downloaded from
and that that is what you are
using to block "tracking" websites. To see if that is the problem rename
HOSTS to NOHOSTS. There is even a batch file available that will toggle the
renaming back and forth. I keep a shortcut to this batch file on my desktop
but rarely use it since I normally wish to keep the protection provided by
the mvps hosts file. BTW, this file is updated often so if you decide you
like it, you should update it. However updating it will not fix your
"problem", renaming or deleting it will allow you to go to the roughly
15,000 blocked websites.
