    I am wondering if there is a site with downloadable host files that automatically have hosts for ad-banners, and ads and what not blocked out, also, is there a good program for switching and adding and updating hosts files?

    Maybe you are looking for Mike's hosts:

    Use it together with "Hostman":

    Mike's list is a good choice for blocking ads. Mike's site clearly states that ad-blocking is THE main emphasis of his HOSTS list.

    There are other choices for HOSTS lists which offer broader protection. For example the website for the MVPS HOSTS file says...
    Other excellent choices include the following...
    HpGuru
    Bluetack
    Sh0rtie
