    Default Microsoft.Windows.RedirectedHosts removal

    I am in need of help. I can not remove this malware called Microsoft.Windows.RedirectedHosts using Spybot S&D. When I attempt to fix these entries, I get an error message stating "Unexpected error in fixing problems (cannot create file "C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts". Access is Denied). Can you help me?

    Hello wmtrainman,

    Please see this forum's FAQ which details how to produce a HJT log and copy paste it into a new topic.
    "BEFORE you POST"(READ this Procedure BEFORE Requesting Assistance)

    If HJT won't run please start a new topic anyway, make note of the situation and and a volunteer analyst will advise you when available.

    Best regards.
