Hi,

* Download: HostsXpert
Unzip hoster to an own folder, eg C:\HostsXpert
Start HostsExpert.exe, click 'Restore MS Hosts file' and click OK.

That didn't work. It says that my host file can't be manipulated.

An error message pops up:
ERROR: Cannot create file C:\WINDOWS\System32\DRIVERS\ETC\hosts

Ok, no worries...

Since you already have Malwarevytes installed...


Open Malwarebytes > More Tools tab > Fileassasin > Click Run Tool
Then an explorer Window will open.
Copy and paste next in the field under file name:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

Then Click open next to it.

You should see this image:

Posted Image

Click yes there.

FileAssassin will then delete the hosts file.

To recreate it again (default hosts file), start Hostxpert again.
It will give a warning that the hosts file doesn't exist and Press OK to create hosts file.
Click OK there.
