Thanks for your response ztucker. In the above quote code, I name it xhost.bat and ran it in my desktop. After running the above, I am given the hosts and open in notepad. I made changes and did the CTRL S. I notice the save path to be desktop. Thus, I went to Save As and traverse to the hosts in ... system32/drivers/etc/hosts and try to do the save to affect the hosts.
attrib -s -h -r hosts
Rem x hosts
attrib +s +h +r hosts
I am given a message of Access denied - c: windows/system32/drivers/etc/hosts in command prompt.
Axe0: Thank your your reply and I agree with you that an editor must be run as administrator to change hosts. I did all of those in preparation and thus conclude there is more than what I have seen in blogs. LOL, unsigned drivers is an issue in windows 8.1 and had some problem with public domain software. The cost to get a sign driver by MS. So, if users have problem with a software, keep in mind of windows 8.1 installation of drivers (unsigned drivers are not install and need a special method to install - surf on how to install unsigned drivers). It been ages since I play with wamp and in my case with PHP. tx
