Server 2008 – Hosts file locked…. not really.

When is an Administrator not an administrator?  When you’re trying to edit the hosts file in Notepad++ but you didn’t run it “as administrator” (even though you are one).

I really don’t know why you have to select “Run as administrator” when you are a member of the local administrators group.

Anyways, thanks Guy Ellis for the tip!
