    Tom772;
    I always copy/paste the new hosts file over the existing Windows Hosts File.
    Keep in mind that the hosts file has no extension (hosts and not hosts.txt or anything else).

    Get HostsMan to manage, secure, update, edit the HOSTS file. ;)

    I hear that it's NOT WORTH making a host file, cause it can be edit even in read mode only.

    That's not true. Several softwares protect your Windows Hosts File against any change. They warn you each time when it occurs.
    MSAS does it, Spybot Secure Shredder does it, ...
