    Help me! itunes keep saying that it could not complete my request, i downgraded but then nothing worked so I was dumb to delete everything in hosts file. Then it still didn't work help please.

    I don't know if this is the right section so if a mod can move it to a right one.

    Its all just a bunch of encrypted 64-bit code, I opened it in every thing i could think of notepad, C++,Javascript,BASIC,CMD,Wordpad, I finally got it opened.

    Then magically...restarted computer and it was fixed.

    The hosts file should open with notepad.

    Lock the hosts file, and when you going to edit it in the future, unlock it.
