Hi Experts,

I am running win xp prof (sp2), with one Admin account and one User account and use Internet Explorer 7. Is there any way, at all, in which the hosts file can be disabled/bypassed from user mode.

Also is it possible that some browsers or other types of net services can bypass the hosts file in any way?

Note: The default security permission is set for the hosts file from Admin mode.

Thank You,
Neville

Not without changing it remotely using an Admin-type account...
