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

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
