I have followed the instructions to remove Security Tool but when I try to save the new Hosts file I get the following message:

'You don't have permission to save in this location. Contact the administrator to obtain permission. Would you like to save in the ***** folder instead?'

It is my mother in laws laptop and she is the only user. she has an administrator account.

The OP is Vista.

Any advice please.
