Cant connect to particular website?

  meniscus 13:28 26 Mar 07

I gave my laptop to my brother for the week and now when i try to connect to my college homepage, it won't. (He obviously been messin with the settings!) The website itself is functioning because it works on the other computers at the library.

Does anyone have an idea what settings have been changed that are blocking access to this particular website? Or where i could start looking would be a great help too?
Thanks in advance,

Check your firewall settings so they allow your college web site.

Also look in your 'hosts' file to see it isn't blocked.

Thanks. Where do i find the "hosts" file?

c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts (no file extension). It should open in Notepad (right click - Open With).
