Hello welcome to the forums.
Editing the hosts file is pretty straight forward providing you open it from an elevated command prompt (open notepad by right clicking select run as admin then use it to open hosts).
There can be problems occasionally, fortunately ther is a work around in this MS knowledge base article.

Good luck.

Could just drag it to your desktop, edit it then drag it back...works for me every time.
