    Hi Guys,

    I recently changed my host file to the one suggested in http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=27971
    and since then when i have run Ad-Aware, it has reported a number of redirected host problems.

    I have not fixed these as i believe they may be a sign that the HOSTS file is actually doing what it is supposed to. Is this the case or should these problems be fixed using ad-aware?

    Regards

    Andy

    Hi Andy....

    NO, DO NOT FIX...

    Rightclick in the window where they are listed and select 'Add to Ignorelist' I *think* is the option.

    see my pic...

    Cheers, TAS

    PS... of course make sure it's only those entries you ignore.
