I am a emeber of music site Emusic.com, and have all of a sudden not been able to access their website through either internet explorer or avant browser(about 2 weeks).

I can access all other websites as normal, but i get a "Cannot find server or DNS Error"page come up when i go to access their site.

I have emailed emusic, but have received nothing constructive back from them. I havn't tried accessing their site through a friends PC yet, but presume their site is still up and running as I have received new music emails from them.

I have tried turning of my firewall and accessing the site, and linking the site through search engines, but neither has worked.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

It's weird, the only site you can't access. Are you sure, if your IP is not blocked by the site owner, by any mean. This can be one of the possibility. If you can check that site from some another PC would give you an idea about it. ATB

Was there any resolution on this? I am having the same exact access problem on one of my computers. My other two computers access it fine. What is going on? I turn firewalls off and clear the cache and history, etc, but still have the problem.

I went into windows/system 32/drivers/etc. I then opened up the hosts file in my notepad, found the entry with emusic in it and deleted it. That fixed it for me.

I am astounded. That is so bizarre. It worked. It didn't totally work, because I can't just go to emusic.com. I have to go to emusic.com/browse, etc. etc.....anyway. It is good enough. That is so weird. What is that "Host" file??

Thank you soooooooo much.
