Hosts File

Blocking Unwanted Parasites with a Hosts File
(Parasites being Banner Ads, Pop-up Ads, and Spyware).

I don't get 80% of Banner Ads or 95% of spyware and 98% of pop-ups. I'm also careful, I'm sure if I were just an end user I would get more of an 85% on that spyware, but once you install this you will learn to be more careful. I do not recommend it for everyone, but it's pretty kick if you go to a lot of shady websites like (mature only, the ads are dirty, the content is priceless) where the Ads are disgusting and you have more pop ups than you can stand. It even blocks ads in ad-ware like kazaa. (If you're still using kazaa. *snickers*)

Any other helpful recommendations?
