    • Blocking
      Unwanted Parasites with a Hosts File
    • What it does …
      The
      Hosts file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names.
      This file is loaded into memory (cache) at startup, then Windows checks the
      Hosts file before it queries any DNS servers, which enables it to
      override addresses in the DNS. This prevents access to the listed
      sites by redirecting any connection attempts back to the local
      (your) machine. Another feature of the HOSTS file is its ability to block
      other applications from connecting to the Internet, providing the
      entry exists.
