    Hi Everyone,

    Yesterday, I ran a complete system scan with AVG free Version 7.5.432 & it said that everything was fine, except that it noted that there was a change to the hosts (Object Result Status
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts Change Changed). I have pasted a copy of the report below, along with the report from last month which had no such note.

    A few days ago, I did download a "test" from http://www.greenborder.com/ at http://www.greenborder.com/test/ & AVG identified it as a trojan, I just moved it to the virus vault and deleted it. I know it probably was not a trojan, but I just deleted it anyway. I also recently upgraded to the new Zone alarm Free 7.0.302.000 but I think I did the AVG full scan before installing the new ZA.

    Is this anything to be alarmed about ? I would appreciate any advice or comments. I'm running Windows XP Media Center Version 2002 SP2. I'm also running Zone Alarm Free, Windows defender, and I scan periodically with AVG anti-spyware, spybot, and a-squared free.

    Thanks
    John
