    Yeah.. Many questions will be asked.
    Please answer the question in the title. Pretty please?

    If you want the reason, it's to stop my cousin from looking at teh pr0n.

    It's at: c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

    But you probably need Admin rights and need to uncheck hide system files in the Explorer options.

    DUDE ARE YOU MY FRIGIN TWIN BROTHER?????

    That was what I needed the hosts file for! Redirecting to that rickroll site... lmfao
    Thanks, I found it Skye. How would I go about redirecting to other sites when you type in some other site?

    I was thinking about "You spin me right round right like a record", but I realized he's only 10. [​IMG]

    Yes.. I imagine he'll grow up to be a perv.
    Better stop him while he's at it.

    Now what about redirecting sites? =P

    Gambia, The
    I think the host file can only redirect websites to the local host server, and not to another website. Not too sure though.

    Well... I only know a couple sites he goes too. I'm not sure if it's allowed on GBAtemp though.
    It's pretty easy to find out the IP, just type 'ping www.
