    ran DRweb cureit it said i have a corrupted host file, it looks ok?

    So i d-loaded Chirp to programs my ham radio it so happens i d-loaded from a site that was not his site it was a counterfeit site, when i installed it it asked me to update that took me to his real site i then removed, that program and installed the real one, which i confirmed was his main site and only site. So i ran a bunch scanners hitmanpro, dr web norton 360, malwarebytes superantispyware , only one found something that was dr web it said my host file was corrupted, i looked it my host file i don't see anything out of the ordinary, except for stuff added from unchecky, can somone if i upload my host file here can see if anything bad has been added ???, at least i don't have any rootkits or keyloggers as none of them found anything bad.

    If only one app had a problem, i'd just ignore it. Also, DRWeb seems to be Russian in origin. I wouldn't trust it, but that's just me. (Yes, I know Kapersky is Russian too, and I don't trust that either).
