Where is the Hosts file?

Want to check what bad hosts are listed and being (properly) redirected to 127.0.0.0. Where is that file-list? Thanks.

Like Tony said, it's located at C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\

To edit it, you will have to take ownership of the file by going to Properties > Security > Advanced, even if you're logged into an administrator account.
