Rkill will display the first 20 valid entries in the HOSTS file file which sometimes is altered (modified) by malware infection. Modification of this file does not necessarily mean your system is infected since some legitimate security programs and custom HOSTS files can also add numerous entries. Rkill will also check the permissions on the HOSTS file and reset them if the administrator does not have proper permissions.

Your log file indicates the hosts entries are related to the MVPS Custom HOSTS File.

As for Malwarebytes...are you receiving any specific error codes? If not, what is the exact wording of the error message?
