So I got the Security Shield virus or infection. I went to the page to remove it and I followed all the steps. However, when I got to the part that says remove hosts and then download the hosts again, it won't let me save the hosts. An message pops up that says I don't have access because I am not an administrator. I should be able to do cuz I am the administrator. Please tell me what I am doing wrong, I followed all the steps so it should be working?? Thanks
