    We can't read minds, please supply more information.

    Windows version?
    Make and model of computer?
    Is this a new problem or an ongoing problem?
    How do you connect to the internet, dialup, DSL cable?
    Any new hardware or software installed before the onset of this problem?
    Is there a router involded here?

    The more system information you give us the easier we can troubleshoot and help you fix your problem. Thanks

    rjddad -

    click start > run > type in "notepad C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts" (no quotes) and press OK. Can you copy the contents of that file into a reply post.

    Thanks.

    there's your answer ^^. It's bouncing you back to your computer to block nasty (as in full of malware) sites from opening.

    I edited your post, we did not need to see all of the blocked items, that the MVP Hosts program entered.

    Who put this program on your PC. It was just done less than a month ago.

    It is a program that this site, as well as many others, recommend that be installed to protect YOU !

    These sites/addresses are site a knwon to cause problems/infections/adware/popups,etc

    Not hard to modify the list, assuming this is your PC.

    Thanks for midfying the post if was getting tough to read. Anyways, I installed it under your keep computer safe article, but i feel it has slowed my computer down a bit and I have to hit the back button twice while browsing. I tried to uninstall it, but I couldn't do it. But if you say its good to have I'll listen. The only thing is the back button issue is really driving me crazy. Thanks - Jeff D

    Have you got a pop up stopper ? Try disabling it temporarily and see if that helps. Mine has been known to do the same thing.

    MVP files should not be slowing down the PC.
