    It's not the hosts file... I've had this problem before. The only thing that helped me was use system restore to restore to a point BEFORE the problem occured.

    But... if you want to try it...

    try putting a # symbol before the entries he gave you, and see what that does, if you believe that is preventing you from accessing the net.

    All the # sybol does is comment the entries out. They will still be there, but Windows will ignore them.
