To do this:

  1. Navigate to c:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc
  2. Find the file hosts in this folder and rename it to hosts.old
  3. Create a new default hosts file:
    1. Open a word processor of your choice (Notepad and WordPad). 
    2. Copy and paste the following text into a new document:

      Ubisoft

    3. Save the file as a plain text document in the same folder as the hosts.old under the name hosts. The file extension should be  *.txt. You can close the word processor afterwards.

9. Enable UPnP
