that sounds about right - weres it located??

Windows or *nix?
Windows NT/2000/XP: should be, IIRC, under <winnt>/system32/drivers/etc/
*nix: usually /etc directory

MsMittens is correct. Once you open the file scroll down and delete all lines with google in them. Because, you may have google.uk, google.ru, google.net and so on so you simply delete the line and save the page.

lmhosts is for Netbios to IP addressing (used with WINS server)
hosts is for DNS to IP addressing (used with DNS server)
They are not the same. If this is for DNS (Internet addresses), then use hosts. If it's for NetBIOS (lan), use lmhosts.
