Make sure you have IE closed just to be safe, if you're using the batch files to lock/unlock HOSTS, yes, it's best to unlock *and* re-name to "NOHOSTS" (no quotes) with the the RenHosts.bat - batch file. http://mvps.org/winh...02/RenHosts.bat
Just a quick question about updating the HOSTS file. I had the version prior to this one and I also locked it down. Do I need to unlock my current one first or can I just go ahead and add it? Thanks!
Hope this helps.

Yes "unlock" the file, unzip the new update and copy to the correct folder. When prompted to "overwrite" click Yes and continue. Providing you have not edited the file ... (added any of your own entries, etc.)
