    mvps hosts file download


    I have windows 10 home 64 bit and have been trying to download the MVPS Hosts file. I get a note that says "MVPS HOST file cannot be downloaded because there is a problem with the contents of the Hosts (1) file. I assume that is referring to the contents of the existing file. Since I want to use a host file rather than an Ad Blocker to block pop-ups, undesired Ads, etc I would like to be able to download the MVPS file. I have tried most of the suggested approaches -- turn off Malwarebytes, MS Defender, etc, I am open to suggestions.


    BTW, I have another computer running W10 pro, 32 bit without any problems.

    :)

  2. Hosts file editing

    I have to jump in and say I use, and have used the host file for years. It's an easy way to take stress off of old name servers. I don't add everything, but major shares I do add to the host file. I've used the host file for some tunneling as well. I try to optimize my network as much as possible and I have a solid network. But Easy Rhino is right as well, you'll want to have everything he suggested as well. *Toast :toast:

  3. Browser /connection security, hosts file and DNS service

    You're saying that Open DNS(and other services like it) house their own list of known 'bad' sites, and by using their DNS servers, it will filter out sites based on that list?

    Would you believe I was already using Open DNS servers.
    This means the hosts file is moot?

    And furthering that, if there's any bespoke sites I want to manually add, I could do it through my router directly.

    Thus I can empty my local hosts file and turn my DNS service back on?

    Downloaded files disappear


    When you download a file through any browser, there's an option somewhere to 'Open Containing Folder.'

    In Windows, to find a file you have downloaded...

    1. Open your personal folder by clicking the Start button and then clicking your user name at the top of the Start menu's right pane.
    2. Double-click one of the following folders:
      • Downloads
      • Documents
      • Pictures
      • Videos
      • Music


    If you do not see the file you are looking for, but know its file name, you can search for it by following these steps:
    To search for a file you have downloaded...

    1. Click the Start button
    2. Type all or part of the file name into the Search box.
      The file you are looking for will appear in the list of results.
