I am attempting to remove a system tool infection from my computer. Following the instructions of the uninstall guide of the Automated removal instructions for system tool using Malwarebytes' anti-malware(step#22-host-perm.bat download link) I am unable to access the host file C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\HOST to delete it and add the appropriate file HOST file. Please advise. Thank you for your support and reply.

Downloading and executing the host-perm.bat file mentioned in that step will allow you to access and modify the HOSTS file.

Hope that helps.
