If you did this before deleting the HOSTS file, you'll need to ensure it's not marked as read only (right click the HOSTS file, and select Properties).

If doing it after deleting the HOSTS file, ensure you've asked HostsMan to check for updates first.

/edit

If HostsMan produces the error after deleting the large HOSTS file, rename hosts_win_original to HOSTS, then try again.

Please ensure HostsMan is closed (i.e. its tray no longer shows near the clock).

Delete the file called HOSTS, and rename HOSTS (2) -> HOSTS

You should now both have a faster system, and be able to update using HostsMan :)
