Orbit Downloader and Hosts File Conflict

I've used Hosts files for many years. This spring I started using Orbit's downloader to save flash video files while using RC7 and no problems. I installed it on my new retail install a few days ago. The first thing I noticed was my IE shortcut to Weather channel didn't load then some more checking and some other sites did the same and some worked out fine. I disabled the Hosts and everything was fine. I couldn't find any reason why until I reset IE and everything worked fine until I enabled the grab it toolbar. So now I need to find another flash downloader that is simple and doesn't fight with the hosts file.
