Hosts file auto populated with unknown characters

  • | 239 points

    I have installed Laragon and created a blank project via quick app.

    My project is not reachable in my browser and then when I checked my hosts file, it is being populated with unknown characters.

    This is the contents of my C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts:


    Can anyone tell me what I have done wrong?
