I had a similar problem that was posted on the forum with the yahoo, ask, and lycos search engine not being able to search. I read the post and I used the hijackthis program and I will post the log information. Please help if some things need to be fixed. How do I find the hosts folder?

I'm using windows 98 second edition. The problem with using the web and not being able to search, just came to an end.
It is all in the host file.
The name might come up as HOSTS.SAM

Find the file on the system, delete and reboot. All your search engines should work freely.
Thanx for the help everyone.
