sites I didn't ad// Jason do you have Spybot S&D..
installed with the "allow permanent blocking..." if so it acts as a "host file" of bad sites. Many other types of Nanny Programs also do this.
But it depends on whats in there! I once caught a trojan and one of it's first actions was to completely replace the list in there with its' own list which was comprised of every "Good" help site known incl : Virtually every AV site and provider, All known legit anti-spyware sites (Adaware, Spybot, etc) plus most major help sites incl MS knowldge base etc. this would prevent you going online to seek help. Cute!
A quick scan thru should let you know if this has happened. If AV & firewall company names in there that's the sign!
If you want, they can be deleted but if from a good program you have then leave 'em. Enjoy!
