For Vista users experiencing problems editing/replacing or deleting the HOSTS file, please see;

You cannot modify the Hosts file or the Lmhosts file in Windows Vista

I am using Host toggle with Vista to edit and switch hosts on and off. It cannot run at start up as it generates a run time error so I have to launch manually as run as admin ( just right click on a desktop shortcut and click on run as admin). Also Vista loads the hosts file in the dns client which slows down its down terribly, so disable the DNS client service, unless you are on a network which requires it.
