To get http://localhost
Drag C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\Hosts file into your open text editor (Notepad for example) and look for this line:::1 localhost
You can safely delete it or comment it out (add # ).# ::1 localhost
<- commented out
Save the file and try again to access localhost address.
If you have trouble saving the Hosts file then try this:
Make sure UAC is disabled and you are logged in as an administrator in Vista.
Or run Notepad as Administrator. Find the shortcut for Notepad in your Programs list, right-click on it and choose "run as Administrator".
Now do File>Open to get the Hosts file. Make your changes and you should be able to save it.
