    Hi,

    I have just installed Avg Anti-Spyware and when ever it tries updating itself I get suspious behaiour messages from ZoneAlarm;

    [Avg Anti-Spyware is trying to change your network settings by modifying the file; WINDRIVER\etc\Hosts]

    I was just interested in what this means as when I was using Ewido Anti-spyware it would just require access, not try and modify and system settings.

    I found this recent ongoing thread via a forum search for host with an explanation by ewido support.

    AVG AS wants to modify my host file??

    HTH,
