I am a bit concerned about doubleclick. Is that the common ad platform for Windows 8?
It's one of the biggest ad networks on the internet. Someone being able to redirect all that traffic for their own purposes by modifying someone elses hosts files is quite the issue - considering how many websites have ads served by doubleclick.
By the way, doubleclick is run by Google - Microsoft tends to use their own advertising platform.
