Hi. First time poster. My AVG Free tells me that, among other viruses (which it heals), that I have a virus. Under the File Heading it says "hosts", under the Result/Infection heading it says "change" and other under the Path heading it says "c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts". At the end of the scan it pretty much ignores the virus but clears any others. Should I worry?
