    The easiest way to check if it`s legit, is to let HJT fix it. If your internet then doesn`t work, just follow these simple instructions to restore the 017 entry.

    Run HJT and click on the config button. Click on the Backups button. Tick the little box next to the entry you wish to restore and click on the restore button.

    Reboot your computer.

    Regards Howard :)
