Can only save hosts in safe mode.

Unread postby DEHallman2 » October 4th, 2010, 7:34 am

I've been editing and saving my hosts file for "years" with no problem. This week I can edit it but not save it. I can edit it in safe mode. I'm not sure what the problem is. I've run a number of spyware removal programs. They found problems but did not fix my hosts saving problem. Attached is the log. Any help would be appreciated.
