    Many folks will probably answer "Bluetacks."

    As for me I prefer HPguru & MVPS because: (1) they do a great job, but without the enormous size of Bluetack, (2) DSLR monitors & reports on the updates of ONLY HPguru & MVPS.

    As to why I listed my preference for TWO HOSTS files -- these two don't usually update on the same date; therefore, I use the one which has the most recent update.

    Good question, I would say HP, MVPS and Bluetack (includes MVPS) are all good. I use Bluetack because with their Hosts Manager I can just download and replace my current hosts file the newest version within the program very quickly and easily.
