    As the topic says, my antivirus cleared my hostfile.
    I don't remember all the lines that I put in for different VST's.

    Is there any Host-File "template" somewhere that I could copy? :o
    (Or any certain lines you could point me to that should be in the hostfile to be sure)

    Out of curiosity, what AV are you using?

    Seriously, an AV is supposed to keep my system files from being altered, not take up the job itself! I would holler at the devs and ditch it.
