    Host file keep changing when restart


    Previously I've never had this problem. My host file had a lot of localhost subdomain since I'm working as a developer. Starting past 2 weeks, I'm not sure either windows or a virus keep on adding

    # redirecting this is just a bad idea infront my

    # redirecting this is just a bad idea triapp.localhost
    # redirecting this is just a bad idea ::1 triapp.localhost

    but all domain not having localhost stay as it is.

    I've tried restore my windows 8 to 27/10/2014 everything works perfectly until I had a few windows update.

    I'm using AVG. Already put host file at exclude list, in windows defender and avg.

    Tried using Malwarebytes and still no luck.

    Hope someone can guide me how to solved this problem.
