Hi all,

I have a couple of problems with my Windows 2000 professional based pc (probably the biggest is that it is WINDOWS based :tazz: ).

Firstly, I have noticed that my HOST file has been modified and has a bunch of website URLs appended. these are all sites that i have never visited. when i try to delete these entries and just leave the original " localhost" entry, when i look at the file again, they are back! i have tried to stop the DNS client service and then try it but to no avail. i have tried to copy over the file and still no good.

Anyone have any ideas for this one?

another issue, is party poker..... i have an entry in my I.E. tools options? should i start a new topic for this one???

thanks for listening.....
