Hi. I did a dumb thing today, I'm looking for some help. While accessing the Spy Sweeper (version 5.5.7), I deleted by mistake the line under Shields, Hosts File Shield Options, and removed the line about 127.0.0.1. (There were no additional entries) I seem to remember that the original line said something about a valid loopback address. But I may be wrong ! (Does anyone know, like a current user of the Spy Sweeper ?) I knew almost nothing about the HOSTS file, in the end (after much research) I managed to add in the empty (except for the comments/text) HOSTS file to add: 127.0.0.1 localhost Is that correct ? If I now look under Hosts File Shield Options (Spy Sweeper) I see: Address IP Address in Hosts File Correct IP address localhost -blocked- 127.0.0.1 The forum software messes it a bit up (elimination of spaces), basically: Adress:localhost IP Address in Hosts File: -blocked- Correct IP adress: 127.0.0.1 It doesn't say anything about a valid loopback entry/address. (Like I thought it did previously, but I may not remember that correctly). Do you think/know if I've fixed it ? (or did I make a mess of it?) Maybe you would think I should ask Webroot, but their technical support is terrible or nonexistant. So I'm looking for some feedback here.
