    The screenshot shows no significant differences from the default and has only commented lines.

    Don't ask me why but that is normal, I actually had to check my hosts file to make sure I was going to say delete # from and ::1 . It must be a new thing don't ask me why. It looks like Windows 7 and 8.1 are the same way now
