After installing the latest version of ESET Smart Security 7.0.302.26 I'm having some difficulties with using HostsMan 4.3.98.
Since HostsMan downloads and modifies the HOSTS file in the system32 directory by populating it with blocked URLs, I can understand why ESET may flag this as suspicious activity.
One of my HOST source URLs are being blocked/filtered by ESET from downloading?
DIRECT URL: hxxp://www.hostsfile.mine.nu/Hosts.zip
Also, my HOSTS file is not being properly updated/modified with the any other new downloaded HOST additions as SAVING/UPDATING to disk is failing.
Would like some help to figure out why this is happening and how I can work around this with ESET?
Perhaps ESET could add the above URL to their whitelist?
Also, is there any option I need to modify to allow proper 3rd party software access (IE: HostsMan) access to the HOSTS file while ESET is installed on my system?
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate Edition 64-bit Edition SP1
Thank for any assistance you may provide.
EDIT: Also, I made sure to submit the URL file information to ESET for further analysis as per the instructional steps listed here hxxp://kb.eset.com/esetkb/index?page=content&id=SOLN141 if that helps?
