    when i try to ‘set pages’ on Chrome, it says “This setting is enforced by your administrator.”. (im the administrator for my computer) What should i do?

    • Ivy_Anvisoft

      Hello Matt,

      I am sorry for the problem.

      Could you please go to check your host file and remove any possible malicious entry?

      1) Go to: C:WINDOWSsystem32driversetc.

      2) Double-click “hosts” file to open it. Choose to open with Notepad.

      3) The default hosts file should be only one line: 127.0.0.1 localhost in Windows XP and 127.0.0.1 localhost ::1 in Windows Vista. If there are more, then remove them and save changes.

      For detail information, please check post http://forums.anvisoft.com/viewtopic-51-4003-0.html

      If any problem, please let us know.
