How to remove pre-roll ads on Youtube?

Adblock time to time can’t handle this simple task to hide pre rolls on YouTube, so, you can use this simple trick.
Just update your hosts file using these lines:

127.0.0.1 ads.youtube.com
127.0.0.1 s0.2mdn.net
127.0.0.1 s1.2mdn.net
127.0.0.1 googleads.g.doubleclick.net
127.0.0.1 pubads.g.doubleclick.net
127.0.0.1 ad.doubleclick.net
127.0.0.1 static.doubleclick.net

Done!

    For some reason I’m not being able to update my host file. I’m using Windows 8.1 any suggestions?
