HOSTS File (edit, rename, delete)
Posted on 2006-07-13
I can no longer edit, rename or delete the HOSTS file without booting up in the safe mode and doing it from there. This just started with the June 30, 2006 release. I get the following message:
"Cannot delete HOSTS: access is denied.
Make sure the disk is not full or erite-protected
and that the file is currently not in use."
I'm sure this is a new anti-hijacking scheme but if I can't access some sites that it blocks it will be rendered useless.
