    Sync Host File Changes itself Right Before my Eyes.. Need Help


    *Mad

    Hey Everyone, hope your having a better day than I... From the start it was bad and then got strange...

    If I go to START >> then SERVICES>> scroll down to SYNC HOST_7aa0e ...then
    >> RIGHT CLICK on SYNC HOST_7aa0e >> Select Properties...
    Now the Properties window is open...
    If I select the LOG ON tab the lower THIS ACCOUNT is Selected and there are ******* in the Password and confirm password boxes....

    If I select any othet tab at the top.. like General, and go back and Select LOG ON again...
    The window has now changed... The top choice is selected Local System Account.... and the bottom choice is now deselected and the password **** are also gone from the boxes...??? WTF

    I hope I attached the Pic correctly

  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:

    Option 1:

    • Click on Start ->All Apps->Windows Accessories then right click on Notepad->Run As Admin.
    • Navigate to C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc. Click on All Files to see hosts then open
    Option 2:
    Download: Hosts File Editor - Amazify then right click and run as Admin
