    if you dont use a software try manually:
    open with a descent text editor (eg notepad++) and delete one half (cut and copy temporary into another text file.
    if no success-> undo and cut & copy the next half,
    if success copy back the half of the half and so on.

    i had to do same last week to find a mismatch between uMatrix hosts file list and my windows hosts file.
    windows is for all, uMatrix / uBlock origin for Firefox/Opera. i took not longer than 5 minutes with that method.
