I have followed the instructions listed in your MS Removal Tool guide and my computer is up and running. I am now at step #23 and I don't know where to find the file C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\HOSTS to delete it. I need directions on where to look. Thanks

To view the folder containing your Hosts file, go to Posted Image > Run..., and in the Open box, type:
%windir%\system32\drivers\etc\
Click Ok.

Or if you are on Vista or Windows 7. Go and click on start and in the search field at the bottom type "run" and then press enter. Then type:
%windir%\system32\drivers\etc\
- in the box as quietman7 said. Click on OK then.

Vista/Windows 7 users can also press the WINKEY + R keys on the keyboard or refer to these instructions: How to Enable Run Command in Windows 7 or Vista

It's always good to know alternate ways of getting things done.
