No, I haven't been able to install the hosts file. It looks as though I have to unzip it and do something. I am not sure what I need to do exactly.

From what I've read, my phone looks pretty safe.

Thanks again.

I cannot run pdf files. Is adobe reader x 10.1.1 safe? I have CA antivirus on my other computer and when I go to run adobe reader x10.1.1 it shows a suspicious software. Adobe recommends turning off antivirus. But for obvious reasons, I am hesitant. This computer with MSE antivirus doesn't show anything, but I want to be sure it is safe before I load it to both computers.

Thanks for your help.

Hi. :)

No, I haven't been able to install the hosts file. It looks as though I have to unzip it and do something. I am not sure what I need to do exactly.
OK what you need to do is extract the hosts.zip to somewhere convenient, the Desktop would be ideal, to do so...

Right-click on hosts.zip >> Exract All >> select the Desktop as the extraction point etc >> click on Extract.

Now on the Desktop double click on the folder named hosts >> in the new window that opens, double click on mvps.bat >> follow the prompts.

You should now have the custom MVPS Host File installed. If you opted to install WinPatrol, it will prompt/warn about a change to the Hosts File within about two or so minutes if you kept the default settings...merely acknowledge/OK the change etc.

I cannot run pdf files. Is adobe reader x 10.1.1 safe?
Aye it is.

I have CA antivirus on my other computer and when I go to run adobe reader x10.1.1 it shows a suspicious software. Adobe recommends turning off antivirus. But for obvious reasons, I am hesitant.
That would be what is known as a false positive detection, you could add/exclude Adobe Reader from being detected by CA antivirus. Since I have no idea which version you have, below are the instructions for most recent versions currently still in use:-

CA Anti-Virus 2007 or 2008

CA Anti-Virus 2009

CA Anti-Virus 2010
