Updating vista hosts file Naughty chat skype
This key is under# \machine\system\currentcontrolset\services\lanmanserver\parameters\nullsessionshares# in the registry.
Simply add "public" to the list found there.## The #BEGIN_ and #END_ALTERNATE keywords allow multiple #INCLUDE# statements to be grouped together.
## This is a sample LMHOSTS file used by the Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.## This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to computernames# (Net BIOS) names.
Each entry should be kept on an individual line.# The IP address should be placed in the first column followed by the# corresponding computername.
Now if I could only find a way (if at all) to customize my Explorer toolbar (like I used to be able to in XP). Update, I figured it out, I was editing a copy of the hosts file in a separate directory (e.g. # # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
I'm glad the security is tighter on the hosts file, but I couldn't find a solution until I found your post.
thanks Doesnt work for me, access denied, even in safe mode running as admin, even using spybot to do it, even in dos prompt, cant change attrib of hosts either I'll try to turn on the real administrator account haha, so much fail in this thread.64 bit still sees hosts file in c:\windows\system32\drivers\etccan't save in notepad?
make sure you ran it as administrator (type notepad in search box, when it shows up, right click, run as administrator).can't see the file to open?
1) Browse to Start - Open 5) Browse to "C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc" 6) Change the file filter drop down box from "Text Documents (*.txt)" to "All Files (*.*)" 7) Select "hosts" and click "Open" 8) Make the needed changes and close Notepad. # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one # space.Microsoft tries to knock me out, but the community picks me back up. I have Vista 64, I was having problems not being able to acess Google for a week and found a forum the Hoster program from the link they provided, my prob, program works good, I had to "run as administrator" to get it to change the file.although I've edited the hosts file, when i test it by pinging its not giving me the host ip;127.0.0.1For eg: edited host 127.0.0.1 microsoft.comping , I should get 127.0.0.1, instead i get and a strange suggestions?However, when I am logged in as a user, I still have access to the sites I am trying to block. For me it didn't want to accept the changes very well doing it that way. Nice all this, but: HOW DO I Change in VISTA 64 bit ????? Any way to do entries there via a menu or option setting without editing the file by yourself ? I have a Windows Vista i tried chnging the host file, but it doesnt save it at the end..It was easier to do this: Navigate to C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc Move the hosts file on my desktop (It will ask for root password)Right-click Re-check Read-only Move the file back to C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc (You have to enter password again)Your post was still a great help, I always forget where to find the hosts file so I refer here when I need to look for it. There are two "hosts" files and in totally different folders.e.g. it says "cannot create the file, and to make sure tht path and file name is correct"...
