Visual Studio 2008 Localhost Web Site Not Opened

I have Windows Vista, Visual Studio 2008 SP1 with all updates. It seems that one of these latest updates has broken opening Web Sites in Internet Exporer when running (Ctrl+F5) or debugging them (F5): the Web site wasn’t open, and an error page appeared in the browser instead.

To resolve the issue, I needed to re-add a missing line (probably removed by an update) in the WindowsSystem32driversetchosts file. The missing line that I needed to add is below (bold):

127.0.0.1       localhost
::1             localhost
