  • DNS error problem possible user fix

    players with DNS error clear cache, delete adobe site file/s for wartune reboot router/modem & PC then try again
    if still DNS error try this:
    If your HOSTS file contains an incorrect or outdated listing, you won't be able to connect. Even if you don't recall adding listings to a HOSTS file, it still might contain listings, because some Internet accelerator utilities edit them without telling you. Open your HOSTS file with Notepad and see if the site you can't connect to is listed there. If it is, delete the entry, and you should be able to connect.

    How to find & edit HOST file:
    Entries in the HOSTS file override DNS entries maintained by the ISP. This makes the HOSTS file a common target of malware. By modifying the HOSTS file, malware can block access to antivirus updates or force you to a malicious website. It's a good idea to check the HOSTS file periodically. Here's how to find - and edit - the HOSTS file on Windows 7, Vista, and XP.

    1.Open Notepad

    2.Click File | Open in Notepad and browse to:

    3.Make sure the etc folder is highlighted (selected). Now change the file type so it reads "All files". You should now see the HOSTS file appear in the directory list.
    4.Double-click the HOSTS file and it will open in Notepad for editing.
    1.In Windows 7, you will not be able to save edits to the HOSTS file unless you open it directly from Notepad (follow the steps described above).

    2.If you have difficulty saving the modified HOSTS file, check the file's attributes to see if it's been marked Read Only.

    Browser users with lag issues may try this to help if problem lies with your ISP's DNS servers:
    Speed up Web browsing with OpenDNS

    Here's the simplest way to hack DNS to speed up your Web browsing: Use free, superfast DNS servers run by the OpenDNS service instead of your ISP's DNS servers. OpenDNS has a monstrously big DNS cache, with DNS servers around the world, so you'll be able to retrieve IP addresses from it more quickly than from your ISP's DNS servers.

    The addresses of the OpenDNS servers are for a primary DNS server and for a secondary server.

        Go with another browser. Some mean ppl were reporting the website to the Comodo SecureDNS thing, so it's got blocked.

          for the mac location for host file is private/etc/ This folder is hidden by default and the only way to get to is to do this Choose Go to Folder from the Finder's Go menu and provide /private/etc and look down the list of files to find host. Should open in a text edit if does not just select TextEdit.

          I would make backup of this file before you make an edits as you can easily replace it if needs be
