Any ideas please,thanks

is that all the info given,i would expect to see more ,such as
[500000308] IP Address: 127.0.0.1 Host Name: (then website) possibly 4 entries.

This was a false positive a while back but an update fixed this issue.

Have you updated Adaware recently ? if not,i suggest you do and the patch will fix your problem.

Hi skidzy,

Yes there is more info....

There is 9 entries when I expand the Redirected Hostfile Entry.

It states Host file entry then an IP address 127.0.0.1 Hos....

I thought 127.0.0.1 was the IP address you used to test your connection ?.

Any ideas???

Cheers

It's your HOSTS file as you've surmised (and been told) - if you're using Spybot it will replace the default with a new one, other anti-spyware products can prevent changes to the HOSTS file of any kind. If you only have 9 entries, and none of them look suspicious you have nothing to worry about.
