I am using one of my favorite code editors Notepad++, but you can use the plaintext editor of your choice (for example Windows Notepad, but NOT Microsoft Word).
But the HOSTS file is protected by the User Account Control (UAC). So you need to start your editor with enhanced Administrator permissions (rightclick -> run as Administrator) to be able to save the file after changing.
