I use my Hosts file works great

Go to c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc

Copy the hosts file and paste it on your desktop

open it in Notepad

you will see

127.0.0.1 localhost


Ok

just put this under it

127.0.0.1 www.lop.com

Save it, overwrite the original in c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc and reboot :)



Waddy has made a really good hosts file for download has tons in it ...

Install Ad-Aware (search google to find it) and scan with a fully-updated DAT file and it should find and remove the screenie.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
