    Windows 7, Home Premium, 64 bit.
    I was trying to edit my hosts file.  Using the File|Open facility, and searching down through the folders, it did not show me the etc folder in windows/system32/drivers. 
    See image attached which shows the FileOpen window together with an explorer window.
    What is happening ?  How can I fix it ?

    I tried to access the etc as well with Notepad++ but Windows doesn't seem to allow it. If you really need to edit the host file then run Notepad as administrator and then navigate to the host file.
