Hi,

You do not need to specify the destination path, i.e.

rename c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts hosts_original

Just as an aside, beware that antivirus and security software can monitor your hosts file, so if you're prevented from doing anything to it once you are using the correct syntax, then that's probably why.
