What editor are you using to edit the snort.conf file?


Note: Always attach configuration files; never include as part of the reply text. 


Always use Notepad, Notepad2, or Notepad++ to configure any editable configuration files that are text. By no means are those the only three acceptable text editors.


Note: Some text editors will read text files in under one character set and save them back under another. The problem you are experiencing is one of the side effects.


Go back and start from a FRESH snort.conf, and configure it with any of the aforementioned text editors.


Kindest regards,
