Why /etc/hosts is always automatically changed back?

I have changed /etc/hosts several times recently. But after each time I changed it, /etc/hosts changed back to its original content. This look very wired to me, as I had successfully changed this file last year.

Has anybody seen this problem before? Does anybody know how to fix this problem?
QUOTE Thanks
