    Hi

    I've been reviewing items on my computer today and have unearthed THIS page of helpful advice:

    http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/unwanted.htm

    At the very bottom of the page it says: Copyright © 1998 - 2012 All rights reserved.

    Perhaps there is there a more up-to-date version of this page, but I've not found it. :(

    Can one trust that all the information is bona fide, being that it is supplied by Microsoft Valuable Professionals?

    I'd welcome your views.

    Thanks for your comment 'CloneRanger'.

    I note that THIS (similar) page IS, apparently, current: http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.htm

    Do folk here use this MVP Hosts file or prefer the one in use by Malwarebytes? http://hosts-file.net/
