How often you get the errorÂ that you require administrator privileges to change certain files or even access it? The reason, there are certain system files on your system which require adminstrator privileges to modify them so that they are not being tampered by some malware, viruses, trojans etc. But there are situations when you need to edit them. For me, most often I need to edit hosts file whenever I am testing something on some of my new domains which require sometime for DNS Propagation. I use hosts file to restrict the domain to my webhost server IP till the DNS propagation.
Today we will talk about two methods in which we can edit those system files.
