    On Google when I type in a subject and click I get the usual 8 or 10 possible useful choices. Then when I click on one of them I don't get taken to a particular website; instead I get a list of what appears to be large print commercial titles. Why doesn't Google work for me as it used to do?

    Thank you.

    Browse to:

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc

    Click on hosts.

    Choose Notepad from the list of programs to open the file with.

    Copy the content and paste it into your next reply.
