It mentions updating for Vista, but not XP. Any ideas, please?

Download the zip file then extract the file called Hosts to c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc

Do I have to rename the existing?

No - simply overwrite it, ignoring any dire warnings about tinkering with system files.

I believe that you will need to reboot to be using the new hosts file as I think that Windows loads the hosts file into memory on startup.

I'll give it a go.
