Updating vista hosts file
This is why many users still edit the HOSTS file and add names and IP addresses of servers, websites and other computers they frequently access to it.
Development has moved to Git Hub at https://github.com/scottlerch/Hosts File Editor Please submit bugs and features requests at https://github.com/scottlerch/Hosts File Editor/issues Project Description Hosts File Editor makes it easy to change your hosts file as well as archive multiple versions for easy retrieval.When selecting rows to move, delete, copy, or cut be sure to select the entire row using the row header cell.If no entire rows are selected, cut, copy, paste, and delete apply individually to the selected cells. The filter and sort are applied once a cell is edited so your cell may change positions or disappear depending on the current sort and filter. You can check the file properties to see if it is read only and you can check the file and etc folder properties security tab to see what permissions you have. Select 'all files' and then choose the 'hosts' file. entirely possible that your user account does not have the necessary permissions to write to the directory or it is also possible that you have something like Spy Bot running that you have configured to "secure" the hosts file which it does by making it read only.
