Thank you! this page I mean come on, an 8 step process to changing something so basic such as a hosts file...

Yet I still get the Cannot create the C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts file error. This issue can be overcome by undoing the read only restriction using the command line editor.C:\Users\Administrator>cd C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etcC:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc> attrib -s -r -h hostsNB "Administrator" in first line is your user name. Seriously, Easy instructions, I managed to do what I needed to get on a site I couldn't (for some reason) Thanks! The microsoft support nitwits skipped a step and it has driven me nuts (slap chop!) all evening.

I always prefer to read the quality content and this thing I found in you post. I will download Process Explorer now too to follow along with you. I've got a long way to go before we get reasonably proficient at this...
