Step #23 says: We now need to delete the C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\HOSTS file. But it doesn't say how to do this. Can someone help me? Personal Shield Pro has really screwed up my computer.

Use Windows Explorer, navigate to C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\ and delete the file named HOSTS.

Louis, Thanks for the reply, but it's Step 23 of the Guide that i couldn't do. I was able to do it by using Windows Explorer as instructed by .X., but my computer is still extremely slow, even after running Malwarebytes, AdAware, and Spybot again. Any other suggestions?
Thanks, Dave
