    My hosts file, for anyone that wants to save a bit of time and bandwidth when browsing. ;)

    Basically, most of those annoying banner ads won't load. :)

    (It goes in your C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc directory)

    Just out of curiosity, where did you get that list? Is there a place on the web that keeps an updated list? Do you still get the actual popup windows, and they're just blank?

    RR, if you're not running a popup stopper, odds are the updated hosts file won't help a lot as the popups are scripted into the offending page. There's a number of popup stoppers out there. You can get a pretty decent free one for windows from Panic Ware
