hosts file issues

  awest3 16:03 10 Nov 2009

I use the hosts file from mvps. Seems to work very well but blocks things I want to see. i.e. the side panel adverts in PCA pages (ok so I don't actually want to see them but its better than the IE can't display this page msg). It alos blocks Google sponsored fact nearly all sponsored links (see a previous thread, when I had not worked out what was causing it). How can I find out which sites to allow and which not to. I'm happy editing the hosts file but is it just a case of trial and error, some site names do not betray their intentions so its difficult work out...

I'll close this as I've learned to live with it..
