That is the Windows Hosts File, it is part of the operating system.


You can read about this here.


Why do you want to delete this?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

You have also posted about this same thing here  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/513899/deleting-hosts-81/


Please do not start multiple topics about the same issue. Doing so makes it difficult for us to help you.


All discussion of this should be kept in your other topic.
