Editing the hosts file in Windows 7

Ok - so I haven't used Windows in a while. So I couldn't find the damn hosts file in the new version of Windows...

Well, aparently I'm not the only one and a quick google turned up several helpful sites.

In a nutshell: Click Start – search for “Notepad“, right-click and select “Run as Administrator“. This should launch notepad with elevated privileges. Now, open the host file from the File menu, edit and save. (copied from windowsreference.com)

I still prefer "sudo vim /etc/hosts" :-)
