Hello,

I don't known if it is the good newsgroup for my problem but

With Windows 2000 SP4 and Explorer 6.0, I type a URL and i go to my
Personal Web Server site and not to the good URL.

Only ONE URL doesn't function properly other URL function correctly

Example: www.google.com => I go to H:\site\wwwroot
and www.google.fr = OK


Its a problem of DNS? Firewall?
If I stop my PWS, the URL doesn't function (server not found)

How resolving this problem?

Thank you for your support
Andre

Sounds like your browser is configured to use a Proxy server.

Or maybe a hosts file hijack.

Have you run an antivirus and anti-spyware scan?

Hello,

For your first question : No my browser is not configured for a proxy
For you next question: I have two anti virus : F-prot and the anti
virus included in the Firewall : Zone Alarm. But i don't have
anti-spyware

For the virus scan, no virus found

To see if its your Hosts file thats the problem have a quick look at:

c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

(just bang it in to notepad or something) and see if there's anything
extraordinary listed. Usually only has the one entry:

127.0.0.1 localhost

Yes

Correct !

Below, It is a copy of this file:
# Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host
name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.

# 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

127.0.0.1 localhost

Sorry for the late response. Glad to see your hosts file is fine.

Try downloading two anti-spyware scanners:

www.microsoft.com and choose the beta scanner
and
www.lavasoftusa.com and choose downloads and choose Adaware SE

Install both and run both and I bet this will clean it up.
