Blocking Unwanted Connections with a Hosts File

Blocking Unwanted Connections with a Hosts File
What it does ... You can use a modified HOSTS file to block ads, banners, 3rd party Cookies, 3rd party page counters, web bugs, and even most hijackers and possibly unwanted programs. This is accomplished by blocking the connection(s) that supplies these little gems. Example - the following entry blocks all files supplied by that DoubleClick Server to the web page you are viewing. Using a well designed HOSTS file can speed the loading of web pages by not having to wait for these ads, annoying banners, hit counters, etc. to load. In case you're wondering ... this all happens in microseconds, which is much faster than trying to fetch a file from half way around the world. Special Note: new Windows 10 users ... the MVPS Hosts file installs just fine, no need to make any changes. Simply follow the instructions for Windows 10/8 MVPS HOSTS includes entries for most major parasites, hijackers and unwanted Adware/Spyware programs! Windows DNS Client Service Important!

Spyware Warrior - View topic - Hosts file This is an introduction to using and fixing the HOSTS file to enable some familiarity, to clarify some general points, and provide links to assist users wanting to know more, particularly at the entry level to the topic. Most of us use the HOSTS file everyday without knowing it, and without needing to alter it in any way. It’s when log problems arise that we need to fix, then a little knowledge comes in handy, but the volume of detail in finding out about it can often deter us from being useful. The following was jotted to be useful, rather than give the full and complete knowledge base. A host file entry works in reverse. I must have read a couple of hundred explanations of hosts files...That is the best yet! This would look like this (in a pretend Hosts file) New York City and where our PC lives, we call it ‘home’ or ‘localhost’ which looks like this: home [As in “There’s no place like” on geek Tshirts * Note: Hosts has no file extension.

RS-232 Communications (software) Now that we understand the hardware part of the picture, let's dive right into the software part. We'll take a look at each part of the puzzle by defining a few of the common terms. Ever wondered what phrases like 9600-8-N-1 meant? Do you use software-handshaking or hardware-handshaking at formal parties for a greeting? ASCII is a human-readable to computer-readable translation code. The picture below shows how data leaves the serial port for the character "E" (45h 100 0101b) and Even parity. Another important thing that is sometimes used is called software handshaking (flow control). The last thing we should know about is delimiters. Sometimes an STX and ETX pair is used for transmission/reception as well. Finally, we might also come across an ACK/NAK pair. RS-232 has a lot of information to absorb, so feel free to reread it.

Gorilla Design Studio Presents- The Hosts File Every day, millions of people browse the web. They think they are doing so in private. They aren't. What advertisers don't want you to know, I will tell you. You are being tracked as you surf the web, right now. Not by me, but by some of the advertisers. They think they have a right to track your surfing habits, under the veil of providing a "better" browsing experience.

Now Macintosh users can use the Hosts file as well! Unix-style OS users also have their own directions.

Having looked into this issue it is apparent that this cannot be done with any high level API such as WMI and requires the use of P/Invoke and the Win32 method LsaEnumerateAccountsWithUserRight. I've seen many posts on the Internet on the topic but I haven't seen a simplified example of this in use so have writen a quick C# sample application to enumerate the various rights and privileges and display the users assigned to that right in a grouped listview as per the screenshot below.
