    Thats exactly where it is.
    Click Computer
    Click C:\
    Click Windows
    Click System32
    Click drivers
    Click etc

    Your hosts file is there.

    Copy C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts and paste in the address bar in Windows Explore.

    you could just open up run, then type cmd, then type in "notepad C:/windows/system32/drivers/etc/hosts" and then it will open the file for you in notepad and you can edit it there and save it.

    You open the hosts file with notepad, then copy in whatever saurik has on his site, then save and its done

    Just open windows explorer and paste it in the address bar.

    Open My Documents
    And paste it in the address bar. It'll jump to that section.
