I need to stop a url from redirecting my browser to some web site other than the place I put in my browser address box.  

I received an answer to this issue in an earlier question.  The expert said I should go to the folder in c:\windows\system32\ . . . and set a variable to 127.0.0.0.  When I chose the answer and closed the question, I lost the text showing where to go and how to do the loopback .  

I need to get instruction once more on how to block the redirection by sending the value to the loopback ip address.
