Geek Question.

So "Spybot Search and Destroy" ammends my c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file to add a gazillion local host redirs...
Example:
127.0.0.1 www.007guard.com
127.0.0.1 007guard.com
127.0.0.1 008i.com
127.0.0.1 www.008k.com
127.0.0.1 008k.com
127.0.0.1 www.00hq.com
127.0.0.1 00hq.com
127.0.0.1 010402.com
127.0.0.1 www.032439.com
127.0.0.1 032439.com

What gives? Why do I want this? or am I better off clearing it all out and leaving it like it started with only:
127.0.0.1 localhost

??
