Hello Please can somebody advise the best solution. I do a lot of web development, and on a daily basis I'm editing my HOSTS file (Win 7, wth PrevX .220). Today I'm getting driven to distraction. I'm experimenting with Joomla. I've installed Joomla onto my webserver, set up an Apache config, and added this to my hosts file: 192.168.1.50 JoomlaPlay All well and good. I then launch Firefox and browse to JoomlaPlay. Immediately I get the "infected from local hosts" message. I can Fix (which removes the hosts entry - NOT what I want) or I can Ignore. Choosing Ignore has one single outcome - I can no longer browse ANY page in Firefox without getting a DNS lookup error, until I restart Firefox. So I restart Firefox, browse to JoomlaPlay and....same choices. So Ignore has done nothing. The only solution seems to be to disable SOL which seems a bit drastic. Surely there's a better way? Manually adding overrides seems to achieve nothing as the SOL sindo still appears. Many thanks, Jim PS Same with IE; Firefox was just my preference.
