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:

    റㄊ㜲〮〮ㄮ†††桭敤瑮污琮獥⁴†††⌠慬慲潧慭楧Ⅳ†ഠㄊ㜲〮〮ㄮ†††敮瑸爭慥瑣栭潯獫猭牴灡⵩潦摯搭汥癩牥⹹整瑳⌠慬慲潧慭楧Ⅳ†ഠㄊ㜲〮〮ㄮ†††楴灥⹳整瑳†††††⌠慬慲潧慭楧Ⅳ†ഠ
    

    Can anyone tell me what I have done wrong?

    @johncarter Please check the encoding of your hosts file
