Portals Help Page - Host File Write Error

Occasionally companies lock down PCs and laptops to help guard against virus attacks. One such lock down measure is to remove the ability for the computer's host to be written to. If this is the case for you, your SAM window will have an error message, like the sample image to the right in figure 1.

To fix this issue you will need to contact your local IT representative for your company.
