    Default Blocking Unwanted Connections with Hosts File

    Hi there, first post in this wonderful forum!

    i have two questions, first of all, is it viable Blocking Unwanted Connections with a Hosts File in order to protect from virus and adware? and if so, what software should i use to keep my host file updated? Spybot - Search & Destroy?


    Thanks!

    Yes - Spybot is good as they keep their software updated. But a Hosts file plays only a limited role as you can only block URLs you know. So make sure your OS and installed software is update and you have a good security software installed.
