    Hello Sir, Ma'am
    Im Cyril Stanley, in my office system Host file in drivers folder got deleted automatically and host.idx file is changed to .txt format. I don't know how it happened. Now how can i put new host file in my system and also host.idx. Please help. When i tried to copy host file from another system and paste in my system it reads it as virus and not allowing it to process.

    Thank You
    Cyril *
