    Win7 Hosts File

    Hello,
    How can I check if the Hosts File has been compromised, I'm not getting any untoward actions when using my computer.
    Jim.
    May you live as long as you want, and want to as long as you live.

    Would that image still be the same if other entry's had been altered.

    If there are any questionable things about it or things you didn't add or have added from a trusted site, reset it.
