OK, I HAVE A DELL INSPIRON 15 LAPTOP, LESS THAN A YEAR OLD. I HAVE (IN THE LAST 10-14 DAYS) HAD NOTHING BUT ISSUES WITH THE OS (WINDOWS 10), MALWARE, DNS CHANGES, HOST CHANGES, LOSS OF WIFI, LOSS OF PERMISSIONS, AND BEST OF ALL WHAT APPEAR TO BE LEGIT MSN PAGES BUT ARE NOT. I HAVE A SCREENSHOT OF ONE OF THE "PAGES". I HAVE TRIED MALWAREBYTES, SPYBOT, ASC, HIJACK THIS, ANTISPY, ZELMANA, BASICALLY YOU NAME IT IVE TRIED IT. IVE FOLLOWED STEP BY STEP FORUM INSTRUCTIONS. IVE STRAIGHT WIPED MY DRIVE (HDDERASE) AND REINSTALLED. I BOUGHT A BRAND NEW OS OF 10 AND INSTALLED. IVE GOT GLASSWIRE RUNNING NOW. IT WORKED FOR APPROXIMATELY 28 HOURS. NOW THE HOST FILES HAVE CHANGED 4 TIMES TODAY, CAUSING MY OPERATING SYSTEM TO RESTART AND "UPDATE" WHICH JUST PRODUCED A WINDOWS.OLD AND A WINDOWS. NO UPDATES. ANY SUGGESTIONS BEFORE I TAKE A SLEDGEHAMMER TO IT?
