[GET] A Batch Script To Edit Your HOSTS File.
I see many Softwares' crack request you to edit your HOSTS file and I know many of you guys don't know where it is and don't know how to open it right?
I wrote a small ".bat" script to:
1. Take Ownership of the HOSTS file (if you're on Vista & Win7)
2. Remove attribute: system, hidden, read only of the HOSTS file
3. Open HOSTS file with notepad ready for you to edit.
It's a solid ".bat" script with just 4 lines of code, so it's not nessesary to provide virustotal link.
For who knows how to make a .bat file, this is the code:
takeown /f "%windir%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts" && icacls "%windir%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts" /grant administrators:F
attrib -s -h -r %windir%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
1. If you're using Vista / Win7, just Right Click & Run as administrator
2. XP: Run it normally
Have Fun my BH family!

Re: [GET] A Batch Script To Edit Your HOSTS File.
This is a good idea, I never thought of making a .Bat file for this
I use Host Manager right now, or HiJackThis, but this might be easier
Re: HELP [GET] A Batch Script To Edit Your HOSTS File.
hey young guy,
thanks for the post. I cannot access the rapidshare link because its always congested. Is there another place to put the host file?
This is what I get when I open the host file up.
# Copyright (c) 1993-2006 Microsoft Corp.
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
# For example:
# 22.214.171.124 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 126.96.36.199 x.acme.com # x client host
How do I modify it?
do I just delete what is there and cut and paste this below it?
Or do I create a new notepad file and save it as BAT
Please help thanks man.
Also, do I have to install MktingSamri first in order to get host to work?
