hosts issue

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,
