Blocking Unwanted Hosts, Apps and Adwares With hosts File

Numerous websites and adwares are floating around in the internet which serve as the ad server for providing unwanted, nasty and pop-ads which I hate very much. I knew I could block them from hosts file so I am writing this post once again with the links to the list of such adware servers.

I've previously discussed about blocking websites with hosts file.

Now if you want to block adware servers, you should download a host file with some good lists rather than you working on finding each and every adware sites on your own and adding in the hosts file. A very comprehensive hosts file for download is available at mvps.org. Check my blog post for editing the hosts file.

Few more such hosts file providers are hostsfile.mine.nu and someonewhocares.org.

I hope you find this information useful.
