Hi,

I don't see anything suspicious here.
For your Spyware doctor.... I never really liked it because it "misdetects" in a lot of cases. In your case, It looks like it's detecting your hostfile as "infected". This because it sees malicious entries in it while the purpose is to block these sites.
Also see here: http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm
Some scanners misdetect the hostfile because of that. Also, many Antispywarescanners modify this hostfile and add the malicious entries in it in order to block these sites, for example as Spybot s&d does.
So, there's nothing to worry about. If you're really worrying, then restore your hostsfile to default.
To do this:
* Download: HostsXpert
Unzip hoster to an own folder, eg C:\HostsXpert
Start HostsExpert.exe, click 'Restore MS Hosts file' and click OK.

But keep in mind, if you use an Antispywarescanner afterwards and select the option to block sites via the hostsfile, then Spyware doctor will detect it again.

In anyway, if you didn't purchase Spyware doctor and you're not planning to purchase it either, then I suggest you uninstall it.
This because the version is useless if not purchased since it won't remove anything. Also, it's an extra resource hog since it loads with Windows. And, you can't have more than 2 Antivirus installed. You already have Eset, so having Spyware doctor with Antivirus may only cause problems since they are not compatible.

Extra note..
I see the Pando Toolbar installed. I suggest you uninstall it since it's adware supported.

Hello again,

I tried to restore my hostsfile to default running HostsXpert upon ''Restore MS Hosts file' and click OΚ'' but there was an error message 'ERROR:Cannot create file C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRIVERS\ETC\hosts'.

Is it something to worry about or should i trust you one more time?!

A lot of thanx to you :thumbup2:

No,

That's nothing too worry about either. It's because your hostsfile is locked. Spybot may do this for example. Also see here:
http://forums.spybot.info/showthread.php?t=7482
You can unlock it again, or just leave it locked, so malware won't be able to write to it either :thumbup2:

To manually remove the read-only attribute, unlock the hostfile, using Windows Explorer navigate to the HOSTS file (see Note #1) > right click > select Properties > near the bottom of the Properties panel, look at the Attributes and make sure that Read-only is not checked (if it is uncheck it).
