Trying to edit lmhosts.sam in Vista and it's read-only...

Hello,

I'm logged in as a local administrator, and am trying to edit the lmhosts.sam file... but when i open it, and try to type into it, it says that it's a read-only file... how do i get around this?? If i can't, how can i add in the information that i want to, should i just edit the hosts file instead??

Thanks,

Ben

The lmhosts.sam is only a sample file, you sould copy it so its only named "lmhosts". After that you can edit it.
