Since using XP and then Windows 7 have always set the Hosts file to read only as a security measure.
Is it still advisable to do this on Windows 10?
I have a custom hosts file which has a lot of entries redirecting back to 127.0.0.1 (this is normal)
One of my DNS servers is being updated, so I added a new entry to the hosts so I could get to my sites.
This worked fine.
How can I reset the Hosts file back to the default? pls Is This good?
I can set an alias in the hosts file on a win7 machine and access it just fine but doing the same in Win10 prompts for creds that never work even when entered correctly.
What did win10 change?
hosts file entry:
127.0.0.1 hostname alias...
My hosts files disappeared in my C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc. Can some one help me to solve this?
