I have just installed Spybot search and destroy to remove virus (see other topic) and it amended the hosts file. I understand that this is good as I believe it blocks access to bad sites.
Unfortunately Messenger 8.1 has detected the change and has decided that MSN sites are being blocked, so it will not connect.
I can change the hosts back to just the 127.0.0.1 (what Windows say) but surely I should be allowed to alter the hosts file to block bad sites.
I have regularly had this problem.
Hope you are keeping well,
All the Best
