I recently followed the extremely helpful "Remove Windows PRO Scanner Uninstall Guide." The final step to getting rid of it is downloading the HOSTS file that corresponds with my version of Windows, in my case, Windows 10. There is no Windows 10 file to download, only xp, vista, 7,etc.!  Where can I find the HOSTS file for Windows 10?

 

The tutorial was super helpful, but now I'm stuck! Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi there,

You can use Xplode's RstHosts to replace your HOSTS file with a clean one.
