    you will go even faster:thumb:
    most of the host files what they do is that by blocking all this banners,tracking cookies and spyware sites makes your connection faster when loading a page,cause
    you dont have to be waiting a pop up(advertisement,etc.etc.
    as you can see i use OpenDns and Mvps host files,plus sites restricted in SpyWare Blaster and i notice the difference,i am way faster now.
    now about the host file you mention a never use it so i can not comment on that one.

    In some cases, an exceptionally large HOSTS file can drastically slow down your computer.

    Please read THIS for an explanation & possible fix. However, the "fix" carries its own potential disadvantages. That's why I use MVPS -- not too big; not too small.
