Can't load

December 9, 2010 at 22:20:58
Specs: Windows 7
I'm on a new laptop and I can load every website i've come across perfectly fine except for and I need to access it to play their A.V.A. shooter game. I've played it at friends houses on their networks just fine but at my house on my network the website just won't load and I can't play.

I have Verizon DSL, I've tried disabling firewalls, I've tried using different browsers, and i've tried getting to it from other computers on my network.

Any suggestions?

Browse to: C:\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\etc

Rename the file "hosts" with hosts.txt

So you can open it with notepad.

If you see there a line with and a number, just delete that line.

That hosts file blocks websites.

Oh, and dont forget to rename the "hosts.txt" into "hosts" without an extension.

This is everything in my hosts file
