Just tried out the 'Take Ownership', but as you see in the link below, it didnt work: peecee.dk | Vis upload sniped1.PNG
I got this Dell laptop only days ago and reinstalled this OEM of Windows 7 yesterday. The applications I want to use are really old, but I have some old files that I need to open with them. - I dont think I know exactly what you mean by 'how long ago did the IP change?' or what the command might do for me, - I still need to change the app 'update IP' to another, otherwise everytime I open the application it wont let me continue. :S I used to be able to do this in XP and Vista, but in 7 it seems the hosts file is totally locked somehow?
I've already tried that, but you see - the hosts file that I copy still only shows as a sample no matter where I take it. Editing the sample wont do me anything I'm afraid
