Hello,

I was trying to add a line in hosts file to adjust a domain name with wamp server but it doesn't allow me to, I get access denied and another error: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process...

I tried many ways through this link http://windowsreport.com/access-denied-hosts-windows-10/

But still doesn't work. I have Avira Antivirus and ZoneAlarm firewall all disabled and still something is missing
