"Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to... Any website you need to go to right now! Mwuahaha!"

As funny as it sounds, that is exactly whats happening to me right now and its really starting to bug, and I cant seem to find a fix.

Oddly enough, its only happening to sites I want or need to go to and isn't happening with sites I don't care about or have any use for.

For example, when typing in a random website it loads up just fine, but when typing in anything from my bookmarks or sites I go to on a regular basis it doesn't. It doesn't even try to load, before a blink of an eye that annoying "Oops! Page" comes up.

Anyone else ever have this problem or know a solution? Thanks a lot!

The problem was with AdAway changing the hosts file which can be found in system/etc.

After disabling AdAway which returned my hosts file to its original state, everything started working again as it should.

Thank you all anyway and hopefully someone with the same problem will find this information useful.
