I blocked YouTube website from Hosts File and now I can’t delete it.

Please, if anybody knows the solution, please tell me!

    Did you consider following the steps to block it again, but in reverse?

    Just remove the IP address or web address from the host file. It is that simple.

    copy the hosts file to your desktop (C:WindowsSystem32driversetc)

    remove or comment out using "#" the entry corresponding to Youtube

    copy and overwrite the hosts file back to the original location

    restart your computer to make sure all DNS caches are gone

    Either comment out or delete the line in your hosts file that is redirecting YouTube to (most likely) your loopback address ( Your hosts file should be located at C:WindowsSystem32Driversetchosts
