I have an HP Pavilion zv6000 and am running on Windows XP. Recently, some of my websites have stopped loading. In the bottom left hand corner it will just say "waiting on www._____.com", but will never load. Some websites include, yahoo, facebook, myspace, cbs, nfl, etc.

I have looked up my hosts file, but there is nothing inside besides "127.0.0.1 localhost". The file size is ony 1 KB.

Shouldn't I have numerous hosts files with IP addresses in the HOSTS file?

Please help.

What ISP are you using?

  • Go to Start, Run and type in "cmd".
  • Then from there type in "ipconfig /all"
  • Then type "ping ww.yahoo.ca"
  • Then type "ping 206.190.60.37"
  • Then copy and paste the results.

By the way, no, there should not be anything else in your hosts file. In fact, if there was, more than likely, you'd have a virus or adware.
