This guide was created to help you when you get the win32/possiblehostsfilehijack error code. SettingsModifier:Win32/PossibleHostsFileHijack is often a detection heuristic intended for general detection of a potentially unwanted program. A potentially unwanted application is a strategy that includes adware, installs toolbars, or sometimes has other obscure goals.
Windows 10 Antivirus offers cleaning, removal, threat and/or quarantine options. Of all these kinds of differences, there is no difference. There is no “Allow” option as many additional elements may be detected.
Is there a way to mark SettingsModifier:Win32/PossibleHostsFileHijack as allowed to stop the fake penalty notice?

Hello… Well, it’s a pseudonymim detected in Windows Defender. Specifically, here’s what I recently did:
I went into safe mode to run a few scans just in case, and scanned everything below (in this order):
They have all been redesigned cleanly because I would say the bottom one hinted to me that I hadn’t updated in months and I decided to go back to normal to update. I updated everything and finally downloaded windows update:
Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Specific Service Pack 1 and .NET Framework 3.5 X64 Family Update
I (kb951847) haven’t tampered with it yet… AVG didn’t get it and scanned the directory it’s in (system32/drivers/etc) and after that the online kaspersky scanner came up with nothing.
Is this a well-deserved false positive from the latest update? Or is he really afraid of it? somebody Help me @[email protected]

What is C : Windows System32 drivers etc hosts?
The server file is a simple text entry used to uniquely map hostnames to IP addresses. On Windows, it is always located in C:WindowsSystem32driversetc. Please note that the “Hosts” file is acquired from the “system” account [NT AUTHORITY/SYSTEM] and can only be modified by an administrator.
Print out this manual and follow it according to it: “How to use SDFix”.
When using this tool, use an administrator account or an account with administrator rights.
Disconnect from some internet connections and temporarily disable your antivirus, script blocker, and any genuine security software before performing the appropriate scan.
When you’re done and see this Report.txt file, the SDFix log report will most likely open in Notepad and possibly be automatically saved to the SDFix folder.
If SDFix does not start after rebooting from safe mode, start SDFix in any of the modes and type F, then press Enter to complete the last phase and generate a report.< /li>
Copy and save the contents of Report.txt in your next reply.
Before connectingWhen accessing the Internet, make sure your antivirus and other safety nets are enabled.
– If the computer has been infected, in combination with VirusAlert! Enter malware warning and no images or discs are visible in the boot menu, run the SDFix folder, right click on either XP_VirusAlert_Repair.inf or W2K VirusAlert_Repair.inf in the main (depending on your Windows version) to set the context scheme. Then reboot to apply the changes.

Change your PC to follow the trojan when you start Windows. Or
Many of the identifiedMost of the infections are their backdoor trojans.
It allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal important system information, download and run files.
I advise you to immediately disconnect this PC from the Internet. If you are doing banking or a range of financial transactions on a PC, if you have other sensitive information, go to one known clean computer and change all passwords if necessary. Contact these existing financial institutions to let them know about your situation.
While the Trojan has been identified and can be destroyed, its backdoor has most likely compromised your computer and therefore there is no way to guarantee that your computer can be trusted again. Many home security experts believe that after a Trojan infection, the best solution is to specifically reformat and reinstall the operating system. Please read this for more information:
Is C Windows System32 drivers etc hosts virus?
The actual hosts file should be in the C:WindowsSystem32Driversetchosts folder. If you have a proprietary hosts file in C:Windows, it’s probably a malicious file trying to impersonate a legitimate system document, so you should delete it after safe mode.
How can I deal with potential identity theft?No-scams and scams using CC? When to format, how to reinstall? I know what you really chose to do.
