How does one check a hosts file? Please explain in in the simplist terms possible. I saw what you had written on the link that you provided, but I still could not figure it out.
Go to Local Disk (C) >Windows >System32 >Drivers >etc >
Open a file called "hosts". You will need to choose a program to open it. Select notepad.
Then press control A and delete everything.
Paste this line into the file.
Save it and you are done.
Note that if you didn't see an entry in the file for Google news this was not the problem.
