That's very hard to say. Some 3rd party software, cleaner, tweaker at some point. My hosts file is chock full of entries, so original was long ago lost, lol. A Guy
Try the Miscrosoft Fix It option.
Screw Google! Ask me!
Here is what my hosts file look like :
# Copyright (c) 1993-2009 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
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
# For example:
# 220.127.116.11 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 18.104.22.168 x.acme.com # x client host
# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
# 127.0.0.1 localhost
# ::1 localhost
If nothing else works, open command prompt and type 'del C:\Windows'
I do not why but you can manually add it
You can use Winapatrol (which has a built in HOSTS editor)Code:127.0.0.1 localhost
Or you can locate it then edit by yourself

Can you tell me what is the diff between ::1 localhost and 127.0.0.1 localhost ?
Why does Windows XP only has 127.0.0.1 localhost but vista and 7 have both ::1 localhost and 127.0.0.1 localhost ?
Main question, do I need to have both? Because I can access to the Internet just fine with only ::1 localhost.
The difference between them is 127.0.0.1 and ::1 is that ::1 is IPv6, the other is IPv4, if I remember correctly.

I don't need to know everything, I just need to know where to find it, when I need it.
