    Hi,

    I've noticed a new (for me) behavior and I'm curious if it's normal. Ewido 3.5 (both the guard and the main application) have tried to modify the Hosts file. ZoneAlarm's OS Firewall put up an alert and I was just curious if this is something I need to allow or not. If you could let me know, I'd be most appreciative and I'm going to start to beta test Ewido 4.0 shortly! :)

    Thanks,
    hselburn

    Hello hselburn,

    Allowing would be the appropriate choice.

    Bubba,

    Thanks for getting back to me and I will make sure to allow Ewido to check the hosts file! :)
