Vista and hosts file
With Vista, you can't modify hosts file directly with a normal user. You have to become an administrator to edit the file. Here's how:
Run text editor such as notepad as Administrator, by right-mouse clicking on the application, and select "Run as administrator".
You'll get system notification, click "Continue"
Open file, C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc
hosts file doesn't have any file extension. Select "All Files"
Open "hosts" file.
