    Hey guys!

    I was doing my daily routine of checking on my competitors videos and sites. I downloaded a generator to see if his was doing anything new, same old "Update now!" so I clicked yes to see his site...Silly me I guess the asshole content locked my browser I cant open Google or any other big sites like Facebook, Twitter and so on. Here is what is coming out each time I try:

    I already tried restoring my system to a previous day and it didnt work. Do any of you guys know how to fix this?, I dont want to format my whole system because of it, but unfortunately internet without being able to use those sites is useless :D

    Ps: If you are going to do something like this, at least make sure your widget looks good and not all out of place :rolleyes:

    Probably your hosts file is fucked up. Open it and check it Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts. You may be redirected from the actual websites to another website, with content locker. Even though it's hard to redirect this websites because they don't have only one server.

    It wasnt redirecting. It loaded the image instead of the actual sites. But it fixed by itself now, guess it has a timer or something. Clever stuff thought, but the guy is making some good money content locking people PCs :D
