    Hi,
    when I try to create a Hosts file backup with Spyware Blaster 5.0 I get an error message saying I don't have the necessary privileges to access that file. My Avira virus protection is the cause because there I ticked "Protect Windows Hosts file from being changed". When I try to alter that setting I get the message that I can't access avconfig.exe.
    What can I do?
