I have stopzilla on my computer and i have a virus or trojon or something in there also
when I started playing around in the system files I discovered the host files which I learned to open with notepad there are files inserted by stopzilla which are porn sites , does stopzilla insert these to stop them or allow these sites to run?



Mod Edit: This will be moved to a more appropriate Forum.

With all the free applications and alternate browsers that stop popups available, I hope you didn't pay for Stopzilla. Checking about the application on the internet, I didn't find anything to indicate it would allow such sites to run. Have you run any anti-spyware applications recently?
