I forgot DOS!

Unread postby Justme » September 4th, 2010, 4:26 pm

Hello,
I receved a message whilst running HiJackthis. It told me to find the hosts list in C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts But I got here and it says 'Local hosts resolution is located within the DNS itself'. otherwise what is in this dir is 127.0.0.1 and ::1 both stating "local host".
Frankly I am supprised I remembered DOS at all. So how can I find the notes I am supposed to put here?

PS I am running windows 7, sorry I forgot to type Notepad. here is what is on the notepad

# Copyright (c) 1993-2009 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
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
# 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
# 127.0.0.1 localhost
# ::1 localhost
