So I've been trying to modify my hosts file for a while now. On and off because I was fed up with searching and trying different things then always ending up failing. So that is why I am posting on this forum, asking for help from you guys. So far I have tried: Unchecking Read-Only for the file and the 'etc' folderOpening Notepad as administratorTaking ownershipActivating the 'Hidden Admin Account'Made sure I had all the right permissions for the file (right click 'hosts', properties, security, etc.) I might or might not have forgotten something. Also, there is only one account on my laptop and it is me. And I am the admin. Thank your for reading.
