    there are lines in your hosts file that are not the std windows ones.

    the hosts file contains ip and host info that the system looks up first before asking a dns server

    lots of malware adds lines to it.

    Hmm, ok.
    I gather by the way all those other lines have 0.0.0.0 that I shouldnt need to worry about them?







    Thanks for the other thing

    usually only a concern if you have something to hide in my experience
