  2. Hosts file editing

    I have to jump in and say I use, and have used the host file for years. It's an easy way to take stress off of old name servers. I don't add everything, but major shares I do add to the host file. I've used the host file for some tunneling as well. I try to optimize my network as much as possible and I have a solid network. But Easy Rhino is right as well, you'll want to have everything he suggested as well. *Toast :toast:

    Reset Host file to default?

    think my hosts file got modified

    like the title indicate' my AV found a modified host and it makes my internet to work slowly, I read in support forum that there is a solution by resetting the host file by opening notepad and put a text inside it then save the notepad and replace it with
    the current host file. I want to know if I do so and resetting the host file, what changes will happen to my PC? I would need to sign in to all my websites again? or it will just reset without changing much?

    this is the article that I found, maybe it will help you to understand better. hope it will help.

    1. Open Notepad. To do this, search for “Notepad” using
      Cortana, and then tap or click the Notepad icon.
    2. Copy the following text, and then paste the text into the file:



    1. Close Notepad.
    2. Search for
      %WinDir%\System32\Drivers\Etc
      using Cortana, and then select the
      File folder icon.
    3. Tap and hold or right-click the Hosts file, select
      Rename, and then rename the file as "Hosts.old".
    4. Copy or move the Hosts file that you created in step 3 from the desktop to the
