Click 'Make Writeable', then it will show 'Make ReadOnly'

The picture shows that its already ReadyOnly.

But then, I hope you added the entry.

If you added the entry, then its fine.

Thanks for your time Chris.
Okay, I thought I would double check back in 'Host Files' but can't seem to see it anywhere ???
So I don't know if the edit worked. :-\
