Exactly @rach ! I was already using 0.0.0.0 with several other programs, like cfosspeed, WiseCare 365, etc...

Very Nice, Now all I have to do is fight naming that file. I know it is supposed to be simple but I still have problems naming a file with Notepad as Administrator without an extension. :duh: I will get it done though.

Thanks again.

:thumbsup: :cheers:

I feel you're unable to do it because your file extensions are not visible:-

Navigate to Folder Options >>----> View >>----> (un-tick) Hide extensions for known files types

What all I should copy/paste to my hosts file, sorry but I'm a noob in this hosts file area =(

My hosts file (all default settings, nothing changed)

# Copyright © 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.

#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
# 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host
# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
# 127.0.0.1 localhost
# ::1 localhost

You must put the filename between quotes when you are going to save it. That way the file is created without extension.

If you already have hosts file (meaning you didn't alter some stuff - settings) you could just run this and save the file afterward.

In RUN (Or just press Start & Search) type or copy

notepad %windir%\System32\drivers\etc\hosts

:D B) :showoff:

can this be applied to internet download manager?

If you use a patch on IDM then you don`t need to add a thing on Host file but if it is a key you found then I think you should try to add this line -» 0.0.0.0 internetdownloadmanager.com

Note :- Must be added before you insert the key.

backup your hosts file..maybe rename to hosts_bak

save or download the hosts file from the link given by jofre

save it as hosts without extension

then copy and paste it into the hosts folder

Thank you for the host file and the "quotes" tip also.

I simply zipped my existing hosts file in the etc folder for safe keeping and copy pasted the newly created one. :)

Any difference with this list here: http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.htm

Are sites from AdBlock Plus lists presented here as well?

We could extract AdMuncher list... :s

Would be interesting to combine them all in ultimate host list.

That is a very nice site you posted. On can learn more than he or she needs to know about hosts file and DNS caching. Their file is considerably larger and uses 127.0.0.1 instead of the 0000 . The 127 can also be found in the remmed out txt in the link jofre made.
