Type "notepad hosts" and hit "RETURN"

In the Notepad window that then opens, go to the bottom of the file and type "127.0.0.1 youchoose.net"

Save the file and quit Notepad. In the CMD window, type "EXIT" and hit "RETURN"

You will probably have to reboot for the modified hosts file to take effect.

If you type the quotation marks and run into a problem because of it, I will fly out and beat you about the head and shoulders... TYPE ONLY WHAT IS IN THE QUOTES. BTW, you did say dummie's guide to doing this.

I prefer to say " A Knotheads Guide" Thanks SD
