Hi, I'm just a novice, but the guide on removing System Tool was very good - even I did it. But just at the end it requires me to delete the HOSTS file and download a bona fide HOSTS file then save it to the Windows\System32\Drivers\etc folder. However, it won't let me save it to this folder: it just says to contact the adminstrator, even tho I'm the only user and my account says adminstrator. Sorry it's probably a daft question, but any ideas please? Thanks!

running the hosts-perm.bat file mentioned in the removal guide should fix the permissions issues you're experiencing. Alternatively, save the file elsewhere, then move it to the specified location.

Hope that helps.
