    button and their list of 127.0.0.1's are all 'Allowed' - I find that a bit confusing and wonder if I am reading it right that they are supposed to be 'Allowed' in order to bounce off the 127's ?

    I have the uptodate MVPS HOSTS file already and wonder if there would be
    any conflict likely ?

    Hello MICRO,

    By Allowed, you are telling OA to let the entry be included in the HOSTS file. It is therefore added if not there, or if added by MVPS HOSTS, OA need not ask again.

    The site will be blocked if in HOSTS, and you Allowed OA.

    I have both, and no conflicts. OA is just monitoring for changes. When updating MVPS HOSTS file, I tell OA Allow as well as remember.
    Hope that helps.
