    copy the following into notepad save as a vb script

    that will be where your host file is;

    j79 wrote this btw;

    Code:
    'Where's my host file?
    'Joe Zeiler
    '09/30/03
    'v1.0
    
    Option Explicit
    
    Dim WSHShell, RegKey, path, Result, RegKey2, root, fullpath
    
    Set WSHShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    
    RegKey = "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\DataBasePath"
    path = WSHShell.RegRead(RegKey)
    
    RegKey2 = "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SystemRoot"
    root = WSHShell.RegRead(RegKey2)
    fullpath = Replace(path, "%SystemRoot%", root)
    
    Result = MsgBox("The path to your hosts file is " & fullpath & "\hosts", 0)

    or if you want to just open it directly, you can search for it on your hardrive, with simply "hosts"

    search hidden files and system folders
