    Hi,

    When I open the HOSTS file in System32, I have a list of sites. Can I delete all of these sites or do I need to keep them?

    Thanks for your time!

    They are all safe to delete, but doing so might make some sites unaccessible. It depends on what's in there.

    Generally, there's no reason to even look in that file.

    You might want to keep "127.0.0.1 localhost". Does anyone know if this record is needed?

    Also, if you're not sure if you can delete the entries in the HOSTS file, why are you wanting to delete them in the first place?
