What I do is rename original hosts file which works.
save hosts.txt as hosts all types(*.*)
place it in system32/drivers/etc
reboot

Once windows has booted I don't have internet access.
Cannot alter hosts file,just get the thinking circle when trying to do anything to it and shutdown is very slow.

Tried the mvps hosts file and I have internet access.

Sorry for the delay.

The cause of this is typically the DNS Client service being enabled.

To correct it, you can either use the optimized version of the file, or disable the DNS Client service (there's a file available on the download page to do this for you if you're not familiar with doing it manually)
