    Default [SOLVED] Windows hosts file modified by ZA Antivirus --> moved to a different product

    I just edited my hosts file to point a bunch of adservers to and ~~snip~~ ZA obliterated it and left me with a rudimentary hosts file that is next to useless.

    "# This file has been restored by Kaspersky Anti-Virus because of possible infection

    # Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
    # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
    # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
    # entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
    # be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
    # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
    # space.
    # Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
    # lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
    # For example:
    # # source server
    # # x client host

    # localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
    # localhost
    # ::1 localhost"
