HI THERE, I AM TRYING TO RUN HIJACK THIS PROGRAM TO MAKE A LOG BUT I A BEING PROMPTED WITH THE FOLLOWING:

YOU HAVE AN PARTICULARLY LARGE AMOUNT OF HIJACKED DOMAINS. IT'S PROBABLY BETTER TO DELETE THE FILE ITSELF THEN TO FIX EACH ITEM (AND CREATE A BACKUP).

IF YOU SEE THE SAME IP ADDRESS IN ALL THE REPORTED 01 ITEMS, CONSIDER DELETING YOUR HOSTS FILE, WHICH IS LOCATED AT C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC\HOSTS.


HOWEVER I COULD NOT FIND THIS FILE.


PLEASE HELP.


ALAN.

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC\HOSTS is the correct path to the Hosts file. It is not hidden. You should be able to see it, when you click on it you will be prompted on how to open it. Open it with Notepad and then you can alter it and then click on File > Save to save the changes.

Again to see the Hosts file, go to:

Start > My Computer

Double click C:
Double click Windows
Double click system32
Double click drivers
Double click etc
