How to activate the VKontakte page - instruction
- We are looking for the hosts file. To do this, open the local C drive, in it the windows folder, then the system32 folder, the drivers folder in it, and finally the etc. folder. There is a hosts file that should be opened with notepad.
- In this file, look for the lines that indicate the site vkontakte.ru or durov.ru.
- Delete all the rows and save the changes.
- Reboot the computer.
Sometimes the hosts file may not open. Do not worry, to activate the page in contact, we use the safe mode:
- Go to the Start menu and click on restart your computer.
- While our computer restarts, we will constantly press the F8 button.
- Then select the safe mode using the arrows on the keyboard.
- And already in safe mode, follow the instructions above (we fulfill all 4 points).
Some users who still failed to activate the page in contact through the above method offered a simple alternative. They write that it is necessary to move the entire contents of the "etc" folder to any other folder on the computer. We remind the path to the folder etc - C: \ windows \ system32 \ drivers.
And if you have a fresh version of a good anti-virus program at your disposal, then you just need to install it and conduct a full computer scan for viruses. Thus, you activate the VKontakte page and secure your computer in the future.
