I wasn't sure where to post this, so please feel free to move it if appropriate.
I have Vista Home Premier and have Norton Internet Security on it. I just ran the "Security Inspector" module - and it came back with a message stating: IP addresses in Host file have been redirected
- and it then gives me the option to "FIX."
I don't really understand the message, haven't deliberately done anything to the Hosts file, and am I bit apprehensive about doing a "FIX" on something I don't understand.
Can you tell me what might have caused this, or what I can check to see what it's talking about? Does the Host file come with the system, or is it built on-the-fly when I load applications, or ?? I am also using Spybot S&D and updating it and scanning weekly, as well as keeping Norton up-to-date and doing weekly scans.
Any information will be greatly appreciated, 'cause this is beyond my level of "barely adequate" knowledge.
