Do you use a modified "HOSTS" file to block ads & spyware?
Just wondering how many of you use a modified system file called "hosts" to block ads, spyware, tracking cookies, hijackers, etc. ?? I've used one for several years now and always install it on any new computers I get. It makes for a faster browsing experience since the ads don't get loaded, and safer too since I'm less likely to be tracked by third-party cookies and spyware. Anyone else do this?
