How do I unprotect the hosts file?

In Windows Explorer, go to c:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc and right click on the hosts file.

Click Properties and go to the Security Tab.

Click Edit and then either add Full control or Modify to the Users object if you want anyone to be able to edit it or if you are the only user who should do it, click Add and add your name as an editable object, and again choose either Full control or Modify.

This should over write the inherited folder level permissions and you should now be able to save there as a un-elevated user.


See Stepwise

Take ownership of the hosts file and change the permission for it

=================================

1.    Right click on hosts file and click '  "Properties'   .

2.    Switch to '  "Security'   tab and click '  "Advanced'   button.

3.    Switch to '  "Owner'   tab and click '  "Edit'   '   .

4.    Highlight your user account or administrators group and click '  "OK'   twice to quite the '  "Advanced Security Settings'   dialog box.

5.    On the '  "Security'   tab of '  "Properties'   dialog box, click '  "Edit'   '   .

6.     Highlight Administrators group, check the box for '  "Full control'   under '  "Allow'   and click '  "OK'   .

However, this is easy to work around:

1. Type Notepad.exe in the search box, so that it appears in the program list (or browse to it)
2. Right-click Notepad.exe and choose Run as Administrator
3. Now browse to the HOSTS file and open it in the elevated Notepad instance. Now it should save fine.
