I'm trying to edit this file: C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts I have opened it with notepad, edited, and tried to save and got this message: Cannot create the C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts file. Make sure that the path and file name are correct. Tried to use "Save as" and see that it is attempting to save as a .txt document with encoding ANSI. I have full administrator privileges. Perhaps I should turn off UAC and try again?
