    Default FYI: Locking Hosts file

    I had to
    change my
    Hosts file.
    My ZA Pro 8 is configured to lock the file and protect it from changes.I
    assumed that shutting off ZA would undo the lock, the same as other apps do,
    like Winpatrol.But not ZA. The grip is so strong that even if the program is shut off it would still lock the file.
    One has to manually unlock.Just FYI.
