Me personally wouldn't be happy not knowing what's changed in my host file. See why there is a lot in your host file and what programs changed it and why.
It could be for a list of pop-up spam adresses directing you to what would be a good thing cause the spam will never reach it's destination.
But it can also be used for not so good reasons so it wouldn't hurt to check it out.

I posted about the Mirar Toolbar that Ad-Aware didn't get rid of (even though I think Ad-Aware is a great program). Mobo suggested trying Hijack This. You might try getting that, for free, and running it.
