Hi,
I had to install Hostsman but it got annoying when ot blocked many safe websites.
I uninstalled it using Control panel and uninstall a program and it seemed to have worked ok, but the safe websites (as ESPN.com fantasy, Meebo, and others) continue blocked or partly blocked.
Thanks for any help.

It was not the tool thats blocking your access it's the entries in your HOSTS file that is blocking the sites. You need to edit the hosts file to gain access to those sites. By removing the application Hostsman you now need to do it manually.

Take a look here, Blocking Unwanted Parasites with a Hosts File for more information on what a HOSTS file is and how to edit or update it.
