I just got my first virus overload experience (12 in total)
im using norton until it suddenly disapeared so used avg to clean up (plus alot of other things)
It seems that some worms write adresses in the hosts file
so you cant update etc or reach your antiurus company.
Since i dont use the hosts technique to remove ads (firefox)
then why not simply right clik the hosts file and make it "read only"
inorder to prevent any future write overs?
is this wrong atitude or a wise one?
thanx for any thoughts on the matter
