I've been following the instructions for removing Security Tool Malware that has infected my computer. One of the last steps instructs me to delete the C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\HOSTS file. I used Windows Explorer to try and find the file, but I am unable to see it anywhere in any of the folders under my Windows folder.

Any ideas where I would find this file?

Thanks!
