It just restores it back to the way it's supposed to be. I would do it personally, because there are a couple of things in your HOSTS file that look suspicious even though they are deactivated..

Are you having any other problems?

:tazz: OK, I restored my original HOST using Hoster, but I am STILL getting the following message:



A change has been detected in  your internety "HOSTS" file.  Entries in this file can be used to redirect your browser to alternate websites. Did you just make this change or save this file?  If not would you like to examine this file(s)?



Ok, this is driving me nuts! Any help here to get rid of this constant message window popping up and what does it mean anyway?

Thanks,
Cheryl

HOSTS notepad:

# Copyright © 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
# For example:
# 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host
127.0.0.1 localhost
# Start of entries inserted by Spybot - Search & Destroy
# End of entries inserted by Spybot - Search & Destroy

You're getting the message because Hoster did change your HOSTS back to the original...

There is nothing wrong with your HOSTS file, is there anyway to let McAfee allow the change?

Did you just make this change or save this file?

Is YES an option? If so click YES...
