windows 7 professional 64 bit
problem with Hijackthis on Windows 7 pro 64 bit

Hi all,
I'm using an administration account on windows 7 pro bit, when I 'm trying to "do a system scan"a window appear with:

"for some reason your system denied write access to Hosts file. If any hijack domains are in this file Hijackthis may not be able to fix this.
If that happens, you need to edit the file yourself. To do this, click start,Run and type:
notepad c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\Hosts
and press enter. find the line(s) Hijackthis reports and delete them.
Save the file as 'hosts' with quotes and reboot."

The problems are: the file hosts it's empty:

# Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
# For example:
# # source server
# # x client host

# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
# localhost
# ::1 localhost

I've tried to rename but system tell me only administrator can do (but I'm administrator), if I ignore this I've noted that it doesn't write a log file, it can't.
I don't use a proxy.

What I can do?
Thanks a lot.
