I am using Windows XP
and my 'hosts' file (located in C:/WINDOWS/system32/drivers/etc/hosts)
gets deleted automatically .
I am able to edit that file with edit in a command prompt.
But whenever i try to open that file or any other file from the same
directory (i.e. /etc) my hosts file gets deleted.
I can see it disappearing.
I have done enough googling for solving this issue but no luck
also i tried AVG - anti virus, malware sweeper and Hijackthis but none
of those worked.
Any idea how can i solve this issue.
