    Dont know what I did but for some reason banner ads are just appering as a red x on most websites that I go to. Anyone know of a way to fix this so that they show up again?

    Go to C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc and open HOSTS file with notepad and find image.com.com to remove any gamespot problem and MSN for any msn problem and so on, u gotta use the find option.

    It was reported back that the person first backed up the file then deleted it with no ill effect & the red x problem was gone.

    If you are using kazaa lite its possible that it replaced your hosts file with an anti-ad hosts file. The hosts files acts as a sort of local static DNS. Using the HOSTS file you can manually assign an IP address to a domain name. So what the kazaa lite hosts file does is point known ad domain to the host file with your computers local loopback address.

    Here's the default hosts file that comes with windows. Just replace your with it.
