    I am using Windows XP Pro OS with TCP/IP protocol installed and DNS. I can
    not find a file called hosts.txt on my computer. I searched in all hard
    drives, system folders and even hidden system folders and files. I typed in
    the search box hosts.txt and also typed in host.? when the first search
    failed to find anything. Does anyone know where this file is found?

    The name of the file is hosts, not hosts.txt. You can find it in
    windows\system32\drivers\etc, or you can just search for it.
