I followed the instructions on page 29 to detect for infection of the above. I opened the file up in Notepad but as you will note it appears it is just a sample document. The three files detailed in the magazine are not listed. Does this mean I am free from infection?:-

This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
# For example:
# # source server
# # x client host localhost

If the three lines are not there you are not infected.
