Hello,

I am receiving the above error message when I start up my computer. I have Hitman Pro that automatically starts when I turn on my computer. Every time the system runs a scan, I receive the message "Hosts file is compromised. host file contains byte order mark (BOM) obfuscation."

Can someone tell me what this means?

Thanks!
