I think I may be already using that Hosts file. I don't get any green underlines, and any ads appear as 'Cannot display page'. Is there a way to check?

look in windows\system32\drivers\etc - if the hosts files is bigger than 1kb you have a non-standard or ad-blocking version.

I have a hosts file of 638KB, and a HOSTS.MVP of 1KB.

The first one tells me it is from MVPS, the second is a sample. So I already have it.

Do I need to do anything, or is it on autopilot?
