    Open your editor as administrator and try it this way.
    If that is prohibited, for example because you lack administrative permissions, you might need to ask your domain admin to help you out.

    If its not your own computer, ask the owner or the person who manages your computer in the company. and btw its not hosts.txt its host. Maybe just try another editor for opening and saving .../etc/hosts file.
