Take it easy or you might be banished to a cold, bleak place with the people that are in the current What's In Your Wallet ad campaign.

Definitely not clicking that link! :D

Are you a NASCAR fan he asked rhetorically?

You would be wrong. NASCAR is not something I enjoy :P

I like seeing race cars turn right, versus going in circles. :PF1 is your cure, plus you get to see a whole family reunion during a pit stop. :lol:

Negative. If I am not the one doing the racing (see: road rage), I don't want any part of it. I am a football and basketball type of guy myself ;)

After updating to the newest HOSTS file, then after re-applying Spybot-S&D's HOSTS allowed me to find a "bug" with that OpenDNS Updater I had been using. Just changing the HOSTS files caused Spybot-S&D to get stuck trying to apply its HOSTS changes. Exiting OpenDNS Updater allowed Spybot-S&D to work more quickly.

I just switched to using the MVPS HOSTS file a few days ago, and I need instructions on how to update. So anyone want to tell me how you update? Do you just run the new version installer?

All the information is in the readme file included in the zip... However, yes you can just run the updater OR extract the hosts file by itself to the directory (varies based on O/S eg. C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\ for XP)

If you want a really quick and easy way just choose extract here (desktop) double click mvps.bat. It does the job as you will see.

 

Delete files and zipfile.

 

Job done :)

Okay thanks for the instructions. Much simpler than I thought, I thought I had to find the MVPS HOSTS file on my computer, delete it, and then install the new version again. Good thing I don't have to do that! :)

 

Plus, thanks Keith for keeping us updated.

You can always have a look (so you know where it is ) On xp

 

c\windows\system32\drivers\etc

 

If you hover over the file named HOSTS you will see the update date.
