    Event ID Error 1014

    Keep getting a lot of these (Win10 Pro 1909) and all the answers googling around are ages old.
    Check your %SystemRoot%\system32\drivers\etc\ directory for a "hosts" file, if it doesn't exists create it and add localhost
    to the file then save.
    If you do have the file ensure it is readable by administrators, system and user.

    Well when I go there there is no 'hosts' file. Trying to create one all I get is the ability to create a Folder. I would like some help on creating that hosts file in that particular directory. Or find out if it is necessary in Win10 Pro.

    Event ID 1014 does not interrupt your Wi-Fi connection. It is telling you your internet connection has timed out!

    Typical abridged Event Viewer report follows:

    Log Name: System

    Source: Microsoft-Windows-DNS-Client

    Date: 20/08/2015 17:34:22

    Event ID: 1014

    Level: Warning


    Name resolution for the name timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded.

    The red text varies according to the web site you have tried to connect to.
