here is a killer hosts file for it, although it is way too puritan for my tastes - click here

be sure to see the caveat - "Very often a large HOSTS file (over 135 kb) can slow down the computer. This only occurs in Windows 2000 and Windows XP. Windows 98 and ME are not affected by this issue." and how to remedy that. it aint kidding ;-)

This will restore the standard MS hosts file.

Download HostsXpert and unzip/extract it to your Desktop: click here

Double click on HostsXpert.exe to launch the program.
If you see red text in the box under Editing Tools:
Press the 'Make Hosts Writable?' button
Press the 'Restore Microsoft's Hosts File' button and OK
Click on 'Make Hosts Read Only' to secure it against further infection.
Exit the program.
