    Hi,

    I'd like to make a change to my HOSTS file but it is always locked
    - even when I boot in safe mode.

    Does anybody have an idea what could be the reason?

    Thanks and kind regards,
    polle :)

    Hi polle,

    Are you using Spybot S&D ?

    It has an option under immunize to make the hosts file Read-Only.
    Maybe you can uncheck it there.

    Regards,

    Pieter
