    Dear Forum,

    Please ignore this question:-

    Hostsxpert has a make writeable option at the top!!

    Shame on me.


    Dear Forum

    I have just installed windows 8 for the first time.

    I have been using hostsxpert to amend the hosts file to control some of the rubbish that infiltrates from the internet. I install it but none of the options such as merge are working. I believe that windows 8 has some form of protection to prevent accessing the hosts file?

    Can anyone help?

    Hope you are keeping well,

    All the Best,
