I gave HostsMan a try after hearing alot of great things about it... But since i used it i have been experiencing problems with DNS Client as a result not having been able to go online, so what i did was.. Start Run, type in services.msc stopped DNS Client and set it to Manual i had to repeat the process a lot until it stopped.. One question arises since i can't remember anything and have a really bad memory is the DNS Client set to Automatic by default on Win7 and is it running by defualt or is it something HostsMan have done?  A side note also flushing dns wasn't working properly although no message was returned indicating a problem occurred either..

Cheers / Synthhead

Edit: Solved, did a system restore, was annoying as hell i had to stop DNS Client manually every time at computer start..

I was using it on win 7 also with no issues. My settings on the system tab under preferences is automatically flush dns cache after update, under preferences,updater,  I have default action set to replace hosts file on update. That keeps the hosts file from getting to large.The obsolete entries are pruned on the new updates. I also use CCleaner and have it flush the Dns cache on startup. the setting is located in Windows, system in CCleaner. I am currently using Hostsman with the same settings on Windows 10 with no problems.

I've used HostsMan for a couple of years now, never had an issue with my internet that lead back to it. I've not messed with the default settings either.


Hope this helps thumbup.gif
