How do i make host file read only?
is your name ian82 by any chance??
right click host file > click properties > click the box next to read only.
Is this another forum I have to delete from the list I prefer to use coz of people are unpleasant (to be kind in the word I wont use)?
There was no unpleasantness in my question, simply a question. guess I got my answer.
Why the question to begin with?
I guess out of curiosity?
curiosity killed the cat.
Still don't get why hosts file attributes were changed in first place ... that file is write-protected by default .
For some reason when I tried it on a laptop with win8 preinstalled that was not mine, (fixed some stuff for a guy) the hosts file didn't even exist
