Scott,

I had previously blocked youtube.com via editing the Hosts File, and now I need to unblock it so the website can be accessed for school related purposes. I removed its entry from the Hosts File, but I am still unable to view the website. I am running Windows 10, and I launched notepad as an administrator to make the necessary changes. Obviously, I am missing something here. Can you help? Thanks.

-Aaron

Re-check the file in the original location [C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc] to be sure you had successfully removed the entry. Re-start the system after confirming the file is correct. If that doesn't help then try a different browser (I recommend Firefox) as you may be blocking the site through other means: http://www.wikihow.com/Block-a-Website- ... t-Explorer
