That’s what some of you are saying right now. You would not believe how often I hear this complaint. It’s like … well … Really. You can’t search your answer out? You work in this field for how long and you didn’t know this …
Ok, enough of the ranting, let’s get to it.
You are not going to be able to browse to your HOSTS file (located in: %systemroot%\windows\system32\drivers\etc) and open, edit and then save your changes. You have to have run the notepad option as an administrator.
So … how do we get there?
Start>Programs>Accessories>(right click on) Notepad>Select “Run as Administrator”
Make your changes
BACK TO WORK YOU!!!
