Hi all! Hope someone can be of assistance with this. Removed virus "Security Shield" from my system with the help of Bleeping Computer. At the point where I deleted the file C:\Windows32\Drivers\etc\HOSTS file, I cannot copy the new link to the folder "etc". It does not show when I right click the "Windows 7 HOSTS File Download Link", selecting "Save Target As..." I need to complete this last step in the process. Any suggestions?

If you are sure that your computer is free of infections, please follow directions in this this M/soft Fix It

To reset the Windows7 Hosts file back to the default automatically, click the Fix it button or link, click Run in the File Download dialog box, and then follow the steps in the Fix it wizard.
