After editing the hosts file in WIN-XP it will not save. Comes back and says 'Cannot create th C:WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\etc\hosts file. Make sure the path and filename are correct'.

This is after going into the directory and using notepad to edit the file to remove all the unwanted lines, leaving only 127.0.0.1 localhost.

It has also said file is in use, even when I have had nothing running.
