I am going to set my 'pooter to run that overnight, and it might finish by morning. And, as expected, it ran in about ~4.5 hours. :D Oddly enough, the Good_Hosts.txt file is slightly larger than my HOSTS :? yet, it does not have the blahblahblah prefix at the beginning. I will run a comparison toni...

What a Great Idea :idea: gary! :D I had batch files that would sort alphabetically, and another that would remove the dead entries, but I never got it to work quite right and never finished debugging it.

Copy and paste this into your Text Editor of choice, and name it " HostsExpired.bat " (without the quotes). Run it in a Command Prompt, and it will create a text file named " HostsExpired.txt " which contains all the names of the dead entries. But BEWARE: It will take a long time to run its course, ...

TOM, how did you check the sites in your hosts file? Do you have some automated method? If so could you advise? Thx I have a couple batch files that lookup the DNS entries without pinging them (that way, they never have a record of my IP Address). I have them uploaded to my webserver, but not enoug...

Do they ever give up???


I had just recently cut nearly 1/3rd of my HOSTS entries after checking to see if they are still in operation. The old HOSTS was more than 33,000 sites, and now around 24,000.

I guess it's time to start adding back to it.

I make registry changes almost every day, and have never screwed one up. Typically, you need to reboot once you have made a change t...

I am skeptical that you can download more than 2 using IE and not AB. Your Maximum Number of Connections is governed by general Internet Settings not by the Browser itself, so Avant has nothing to do with this. Nevertheless, you can create the following registry entry using Notepad (Or your Text Edi...

Oldest Apps - Tried and True

What is the oldest application (upgraded or not doesn't matter) you are still using which did not come pre-installed on your system.
