    Hi,

    Can anyone tell me why Hotspot Shield seems to bypass the hosts file? (I have to use HS as I'm tethering off my phones internet and it will block me)....If I try any of the "bad" hosts in the MVPS list it allows connection, with HS off they're blocked....Is there a way to stop this behaviour?
