    I looked in my host file and didn't have this line [0.0.0.0 redir.metaservices.microsoft.com] in it to delete so is my Win 10 issue a little bit different?

    I just tried to play a CD Album in Windows Media Player (how very retro ;)), but when I I tried to update the Album information to get the correct track names, I got the following error:

    Cannot Reach This Page : redir.metaservices.microsoft.com

    I did some digging for a fix, and it turns out that that Spybot Anti-Beacon had blocked connection to that domain, to prevent metadata leaking.

    The answer was as simple as editing the hosts file (located in C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc) and removing the following line:

    0.0.0.0 redir.metaservices.microsoft.com
