I'm running win7 pro...I just copied the host file to the etc folder...I then couldn't connect to any sites. I decided to remove the file but could only do it in safe mode.
Is there a line in the host file I have to change to make the host file work?

Couple quick questions;

1. Which HOSTS file did you download?
2. If you downloaded the primary file (HOSTS.txt), did you also disable the DNS Client service?
