Hi Siljaline:

Thank you for the MVPS updates.

I know that MVPS Hosts is an excellent hosts file but there seem to be other good ones too, for example those found at:

http://hphosts.mysteryfcm.co.uk/

http://someonewhocares.org/hosts/

http://www.bluemicro.net/hostsfile/

What I'm wondering is whether you would recommend merging MVPS with any of these to improve its performance?

Cheers,

scratcher.

Merging HOSTS files is not recommended.
