Back when the original Spywareinfo.com domain was working I had downloaded a working Hosts file list of websites that I entered into my hosts file database as a prevention of spyware. This was found on the original FAQ section of this forum titled: "How to remove spyware or a hijacker". Now that FAQ thread has been updated, however the new FAQ thread doesn't mention Hosts files or even an update as what was previously on the original FAQ thread.

Is there an updated Hosts file that you guys use personally? Do you feel its needed, and is the Hosts file list I gathered from spywareinfo.com questionable? As in is it doing any good to be on my system currently?

Hello jonathon1084

Yes! Yes! and it's out of date! As in it needs to be updated.

If you go here you will find all the information you need to update your Hosts file.
