I just installed Bitdefender Total Security 2016. It's 22.214.171.1247 and I'm running Win10 Pro x64. I've been using HostsMan forever and I'm not going to stop now. The first time I tried doing anything with HM after installing BD was to temporarily disable the hosts file. As soon as I tried, BD blocked the change. OK, fine, expected. Went into BD's event log and allowed HM. Now, HM is in the excluded processes list. But BD is still preventing HM from modifying the hosts file. Even if I disable every BD module, it blocks HM from modifying the hosts file. Huh? So how do I work around this? Is there way to make BD and HM work together? Oddly, I can edit the hosts file with UltraEdit just fine; BD doesn't seem to notice. And I don't have UE excluded at all.
