Removing that particular entry only should allow you to run the search but still eliminate most advertisements.
Hope this helps.
On the cnet home page, whenever I search, the hosts file blocks my search. when I delete the entry then I get a lot of ads on the cnet website. Also, I cannot perform a forums search because my HOSTS file blocks it. If I delete the entry, then I get ads. By the way I have eDexter and hpguru's host file.
What can I do to solve this problem?
