Reply To: Editing the HOSTS file
I will have to check on running notepad as administrator. I thought I did. Bringing up the command processor as administrator and running the attrib command does not show any flags (except the archive bit) set.
What I ended up doing was booting up Linux and using it to edit the file. That worked — but as you know, Linux has a different idea about the end-of-line characters. Now in Windows the file lists out in one long line. So, I’m not sure if that is right.
