Repair Hosts File will restore the Windows hosts file back to default. Some viruses and infections will add sites to the host’s file to keep you from going to those sites. But some users also use the host’s file to protect themselves from bad sites.
If you run this repair tool, your current host’s file will be backed up in the same dir as the host’s file, just in case you need to change it back.
