Let’s admit it, we’ve all been faced with an awkward situation when some unwanted an annoying ad or a website gets opened while browsing the Internet, whether in the office or sitting at home.

However, the most simplest way to eliminate these websites is already loaded onto the operating system (Windows) by default. In simple words, the whole solution is in the Hosts file.
Now a hosts file is an ordinary file in the system with a rather special role to play, it maps the hostnames to IP addresses for the operating system, it’s just a text file often named ‘hosts’.

While cleaning up your Windows by yourself, ever came across some empty folder, or files that are no longer useful?

Often times, to replace, or to rename a system file or folder under the root drive C, you need to take ownership of the desired file or folder. Windows files and folders are owned by ‘Trusted Installer’ in Windows 7 and above.

After the release of Windows 8, the method of taking ownership has been changed a bit, confusing several people who were accustomed to the old method. However, the difference isn’t much. Follow the steps below to learn how to take ownership of system files in Windows 8.
