    Event ID Error 1014


    Keep getting a lot of these (Win10 Pro 1909) and all the answers googling around are ages old.
    ex:
    Check your %SystemRoot%\system32\drivers\etc\ directory for a "hosts" file, if it doesn't exists create it and add
    127.0.0.1 localhost
    to the file then save.
    If you do have the file ensure it is readable by administrators, system and user.

    Well when I go there there is no 'hosts' file. Trying to create one all I get is the ability to create a Folder. I would like some help on creating that hosts file in that particular directory. Or find out if it is necessary in Win10 Pro.

    Is the source of this error a DNS client event? What are you doing when you get this error?

    yes it is a DNS with this explanation : There was an error while attempting to read the local hosts file.

    when I go to that directory all I see is a imhost.sam file....no local hosts
