    Hi snowy,

    These threads show the latest updates to two of the better ad/spyware-site blocking Hosts files out there...

    hpguru's HOSTS File Update 10.18.04

    MVPS HOSTS File update (Oct 20, 2004)

    They also take different approaches. Hpguru provides a huge file with a great many sites blocked. The MVPS file takes a more minimalist approach, and I believe they talk about that point on their site, ie. some people's systems get slowed down with a very large Hosts file.

    Both files are very good and are frequently updated.
