There was an error while attempting to read the local hosts file.

From a support forum:
The easiest approach is to delete the host file \windows\system32\drivers\etc that contains the hosts. For this you require administrator privileges.
Open a cmd prompt and stop the DNS client using the following command:
net stop "dns client"
Navigate to \windows\system32\drivers\etc
Recreate hosts using:
echo "" > hosts
(that is two consecutive double-quotes without anything between)
Restart the DNS client using:
net start "dns client"
