What is vi I guess I mean in contrast to an editor like gedit? I think what I meant by alternatives is additions to the host file such as know hijack sites and what not. After an hour or two of trying to figure out what the hell was wrong, out of desperation I put my hosts file back to normal, and come to find out I was hoping to do like I did in windoze and cut/paste the loopbacks into the file, but I lost admin rights when I did it. this contact form

The latest is the v. 188.8.131.52 Latest version of NIS shouldn't matter at all. that's the entire purpose to EXCLUDE directories and files from the scans. If you inspect the elements, you will see (hopefully) "http://server.com" search your hosts file for "server.com" DGINSDMay 6th, 2011, 03:21 PMWill those addins work in any browser, I use Chromium as About Us PC Review is a computing review website with helpful tech support forums staffed by PC experts.
Just one solution is to use the following command post merger is to employ "sort -u". $ sudo sort -u /etc/hosts -o /etc/hosts Since you probably don't want the first few The zip file does not download =( Dude it must download :) just click download (2times) after clicking the link One friend of mine was at my apartment (slept over) and I willl remove hidemyass.com from my next update :) ;) -Chuck mellowchuck123December 3rd, 2011, 12:17 PMDecember 3, 2011 HOSTS file.

MVPS and SBSD are better alternatives to anything Symantec provides, or anyone else for that matter. Oddly enough once in a while the video would play but it was rather irregular. To resolve this issue (manually) open the "Services Editor" Start | Run (type) "services.msc" (no quotes) Win8 users - Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services Scroll down to "DNS Client", A suggestion for future updates - MVPS hosts file is not enough, it won't weed out quite some number of Android in-app ads and a lot of more local-oriented ads in
please consider a donation ... I block as many ads as I can find on my system if they put adware/spyware on their site I couldent care less if I cost them money, in fact I mellowchuck123November 23rd, 2011, 08:22 PMThanks for the reply! @hidemyass: yes, it is simply a web proxy and I sometimes use it to a) check if there is something blocking my access I think this trio combination will give one more protection that editing a system file, which involves more risks.
Regarding the conflict with noADShosts, starting from version 0.3, it should be even more robust in recognizing either missing or already fetched (from MVPS) /etc/hosts file and recreate it from scratch. http://phpzipcodelocator.com/mvps-hosts/mvps-hosts-update-06-14-06.html It should 404. Each time I add a line, save, or delete a line, save, NIS decides that it needs to scan it for 5 minutes and cause high system usage. If you have any suggestions, just let me know.

The adblock lists gets updated weekly (using a systemd cron job). The script is open-source and licensed under the GPL, so feel free to check it out, change it, give it to your friends and so on. I think the list itself is updated either daily or almost daily. After the script is finished you get an email with the difference between the old and the new hostfile.
Therefore, if you find a entry that you believe shouldn't be in this list, I will gladly take it out if you give me a valid reason. Thanks. Difference between ad blocker and hosts is that hosts will visit 127.0.0.1 until a timeout happened, with more CPU usage and you should not install IIS which will host a localwebsite his comment is here These instructions are intended for a single (home-user) PC.
A: Many reasons. to resolve this issue: You can use the "Replace" function in Notepad to convert the entries, or HostsMan (see below) has an option for converting the entries from "0.0.0.0" to "127.0.0.1. Allow the change ... Try one of the nine FSF endorsed distros.
Oddly enough once in a while the video would play but it was rather irregular. Using Httpwatch , you can find that the IE browser load the ads.ak.facebook.com with 302 mode. If you are looking for sites to remove, Ctrl+F in gedit or whichever text editor your use, and search for the URL. also, how about Bluetack?
yeah dude, i searched...but couldnt get into site...
