When trying to remove System Tool infection, I used the removal guide. I used Rkill and Malwarebytes software fine. I also removed the Hosts file from C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc. Windows does not give me permission to replace it with the new Hosts file and asks if I want it put in my own user file instead.
I don't dare to shut the computer down without this file in place. Any ideas?

Edit : Forgot to mention System Tool in the title, sorry! Up to 4am this morning trying to get rid of the thing. My daughter woke me up 3 hrs later (bless her !), so a bit tired right now.
