    Greetings....i just looked at me host file to see if all was well. I have not looked for maybe 6 weeks and all that was there at that time was 64.91.255.879 (a good thing)
    NOW i have maybe 200 what look to be tracking sites....i am seeing all with
    127.0.0.1
    I know this is me computer but i have the loopback disabled at the FW allowing only my mail client to use it......sooooo why are these sites listed when they were not before :doubt:
