    Host file has strange characters. I can't add a host entry?


    I was trying to enter a new host file on one of our remote userís laptop and when I went to open the file it showed a bunch of Chinese symbols and wouldnít let me do anything with it? I tried deleting it and then tried to build a new host file from scratch and the same thing happened??? Iíve never seen this before. Any suggestions?
