    Thanks, FreeBooter.
    Before I do changes to my registry:
    Will this work in the Windows folder? I thought I read something that it does not work there.

    Is your account in the Administrators group?

    Enter net localgroup administrators from a Elevated Command Prompt to see.

    Yes it is.
    Thanks for posting.
    I also exited Kaspersky totally and tried your previous commands without success.

    You can take ownership of the Hosts file.

    Get Process explorer and find which process have the file open.

    - Go to Find, Find Handle or DLL
    - Enter the name of the file and press Search.
    You can close the handle manually

    It's only svchosts.exe. Kill?

    Did you run Process explorer with admin rights?

    Check this thread at superuser.. One of the anwsers includes solution when file is locked by svchosts.exe, by killing it and imidiately renaming hosts file to something else, then copying default file over.
