    Default Update localhost

    Hi,
    I added this line in the host file:
    192.168.118.129 localhost
    But localhost is still resolving 127.0.0.1
    How can I fix this? Thanks.

    ps: I do not have any problem saving this host file, I'm using notepad in admin mode

    Hi bractar,

    Welcome to Windows 8 Forums. Are you using any proxy network? Disable your procy network to try again.

    By the way, having vmware in this list is normal and necessary

    Still no luck with this and I need my pc ready for work soon. Any idea?
    I uninstalled McAfee and disabled Windows Firewall in order to test.
    Thanks

    I'm using a temporary solution in order to be able to work. local.domain.com instead of localhost
    But I really need a final solution.
    Thanks
