I spend a lot of time on the bad side of the web doing research (I'm an MVP in Networking). Only 3 infections in the last several years and all were stopped before they could spread!

Wasn't aware you are an MVP, glad to hear the HOSTS file helps you in your research.

Hi Silj:

I've been using the MVPS Hosts File for just a few weeks and love it, but I hadn't noticed that line at the bottom of their page about subscribing to update notices and am now subscribed.

Many thanks. :thumbsup:
