how-to block ads



No; Comcast does not block or censor any webpages. The site you are trying to visit may be down, or have possible DNS issues. Your firewall or HOSTS file may also be blocking access to the site.

To access the HOSTS file browse to this location in Windows Explorer:
For Windows XP: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
For Windows 2K: C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
For Win 98\ME : C:\WINDOWS

You can look at the HOSTS file in Notepad and see if the website you were trying to visit is listed. If so, erase that entry (you may want to erase the whole file if a program loaded a bogus HOSTS file) and save it in Notepad. You should then be able to view the website.
