    I'm not sure, but perhaps modifying the HOSTS file might help you in this regard

    You can also try a hardening tool called Spywareblaster to immunize your system.

    PS: Sorry for the double post :D

    Here you go - an effective hosts file which will block many advertising & known malware sites.

    If you subscribe to their mailing list you will receive links to their updated lists, too.

    If you use Open DNS service, they have a facility for you to block specific web sites being loaded. It's a "one by one" process with that, though!

    Which is only a hosts file manager and editor.
    Good prog indeed, but there has to be something in your HOSTS.
    If there is only 127.0.0.1 localhost it won't do anything for you.

    It has an autoupdate feature with several sources predefined (such as MVPS hosts file).

    Shrug; as said, it already bundles 4 blacklists... maybe the OP could review them.

    Wrt OpenDNS - I strongly discourage using their service due to Google hijacking and wildcard records for TLDs. :mad: :thumbd:

    (You can disable those but then you cannot use any of their predefined or custom blacklists, which renders it completely useless for the purpose stated in this thread).

    It does not bundle anything, it is up to the user,
    Can't remember I said something about OpenDNS.

    Yes everything you say true. However, it hostman is a set and forget solution that will auto update. Much easier than recommending a static hosts file.

    I'm currently using the latest SpywareBlaster list - but none of these solutions is really up to date.

    If you're a frequent surfer - no matter which blacklist you use - you'll find a lot of tracking cookies collected that are not yet included in the black lists.

    I haven't kept count of the tracking cookies that I've manually added to Tools/Options/Privacy/Exceptions list - but my guess is that I've added about 40 tracking cookies to the SpywareBlaster blacklist. New ones pop up frequently.

    If you're really manic about maintaining an up-to-date exceptions list:
    - Install a good basic blacklist (SpywareBlaster, MVPS, etc.).
    - Regularly inspect the browser Tools/Options/Privacy/Cookies listings.
    - Google to identify suspicious cookies.
    - If it's a tracking cookie, add it to Exceptions and delete it from Cookies.

    That's about the only way to really maintain a really current blacklist.

    Hope this helps!
