    Hello. I'm having this problem: some websites won't load under certain conditions, no matter what browser I use (chrome, firefox and IE8). When I try to right click a link and press 'open in a new tab' it will most porbably not work. It gives me this error:

    Serverul nu a fost găsit (The Server could not be found)

    Firefox nu g&#259;se&#537;te serverul www.wowcooc.com. (FF can't find the server <server>)

    * Verifica&#539;i adresa de erori de tastare cum ar fi ww.exemplu.ro în loc de www.exemplu.ro
    * Dac&#259; nu pute&#539;i înc&#259;rca nicio pagin&#259;, verifica&#539;i conexiunea la re&#539;ea a calculatorului dumneavoastr&#259;.
    * Dac&#259; sistemul dumneavoastr&#259; este protejat de un paravan (firewall) sau proxy, asigura&#539;i-v&#259; c&#259; Firefox are permisiunea de a accesa internetul.

    Also most of the websites are loading really SLOW!

    Yea anyways I don't know anything about javascripts or hosts files, just please tell me how a hosts file should look and what do you think the problem is. Thank you in advance.

    "This method tells your computer which DNS to use for all your internet browsing. Most home users have this set to "automatic" and the DNS is provided by the user's ISP, but you can use any DNS you like (you can even make your own DNS if you're keen).

    Before you start you will need to know the IP address of the DNS to use - if you don't know this you'll need to ask your system administrator or ISP.

    To set your DNS, you need to find the Internet Protocol window.

    For Users on a Dial-up Connection:
    Go to My Computer>Dialup Networking.
    Right-click your internet connection and select Properties.
    A window will open - click the Server Types tab. Click TCP/IP Settings.
    For All Other Users:
    Go to Control Panel>Network Connections and select your local network.
    Click Properties, then select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).
    Click Properties.
    You will see a window like the one below - this is the Internet Protocol window. Select "Use the following DNS server addresses" and enter the desired DNS server(s) in the space(s) provided."
