The guide to remove Security Tool is great and pretty simple to follow. I ran into one problem though and not being familiar with the HOSTS file, I am unaware of what it is I need to do.
The user is instructed to download Hostsperm.bat and run it. After that is done, the HOSTS file needs to be deleted.
This is the path given: C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\HOSTS.
I did both items above but I'm not sure I did them correctly. In the HOSTS file besides HOSTS, there are Imhosts.sam, networks, protocol and services which I did not delete; I left everything but HOSTS as it was.
Next, there is a link to click on for the Windows 7 Hosts File Download Link which didn't seem to do anything and when I looked back in the original file HOSTS wasn't there; just the remaining four items I mentioned.
What have I done wrong (this time? )
Also, do I delete the hostsperm.bat from my desktop when I'm done???
A little over my head . . .
Ugggh! Forgot which computer I was working on and clicked on Windows XP HOSTS file link to complicate things.
