Once in Safe mode, go to Start and type the following in the Run box and then press Enter:

In the window that comes up, locate the file named 'Hosts' and double-click on it. A window will open and ask you to select an application to open the hosts file. Use 'Notepad.exe' to open the file. Once open, add the following line in the hosts file:

127.0.0.1     localhost

Then, go to File and Save the hosts file. Please make sure that there is no # sign in front of 127.0.0.1 localhost.

Restart your computer into normal mode and try running the Uniblue program again.
