  1. Just a FYI mta, running just SFC /scannow in Windows 10 could cause more problems than fix issues. According to MS this is how one should use SFC /scannow in Windows 10.
  2. Hosts File Update

    I noted that as well. Lets say one combines all the entries into one list and 50% is duplicates. The amount of unique entries will still be one massive amount and the lists will just keep on growing day by day....
  3. Hosts File Update

    Hello all, If my memory serves, someone was looking for a massive list of host files.... Well, here is a variety for you all that I stumbled upon somehow. (My memory of posting that link in the past fails me though )
  4. Hosts File Update

    That is the old link the new link is, https://zerodot1.github.io/CoinBlockerLists/list_browser.txt your link will still work but don’t provide the last-modified header.
  5. Hosts File Update

    Hello all, Something that I read here with regards to Pi-hole and is also, I think, applicable to uBlock Origin. I tried NOT using the raw.githubusercontent.com links that I have posted a while back and insted use https://zerodot1.github.io/CoinBlockerLists/hosts https://zerodot1.github.io/CoinBlockerLists/hosts_browser https://zerodot1.github.io/CoinBlockerLists/hosts_optional https://zerodot1.github.io/CoinBlockerLists/MiningServerIPList.txt https://zerodot1.github.io/CoinBlockerLists/list.txt https://zerodot1.github.io/CoinBlockerLists/list_browser.txt https://zerodot1.github.io/CoinBlockerLists/list_optional.txt https://zerodot1.github.io/CoinBlockerLists/list_browser_UBO.txt within my uBlock Origin AND my Pi-hole and all seems to work "better?" responce time is faster. Side note: The link provided host one MASSIVE blocking list broken up in couple of files and whitelist file.
  6. Hosts File Update

    System wide ? You mean the actual host file ? You will not get around with the host file getting MASSIVE at one point in time. That why I installed a Pi running Pi-Hole with the following subscription for Network wide protection and not just device specific https://raw.githubusercontent.com/StevenBlack/hosts/master/hosts https://mirror1.malwaredomains.com/files/justdomains http://sysctl.org/cameleon/hosts https://zeustracker.abuse.ch/blocklist.php?download=domainblocklist https://s3.amazonaws.com/lists.disconnect.me/simple_tracking.txt https://s3.amazonaws.com/lists.disconnect.me/simple_ad.txt https://hosts-file.net/ad_servers.txt https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ZeroDot1/CoinBlockerLists/master/list.txt https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ZeroDot1/CoinBlockerLists/master/list_optional.txt https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ZeroDot1/CoinBlockerLists/master/list_browser.txt https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ZeroDot1/CoinBlockerLists/master/hosts https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ZeroDot1/CoinBlockerLists/master/hosts_optional https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ZeroDot1/CoinBlockerLists/master/hosts_browser https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ZeroDot1/CoinBlockerLists/master/MiningServerIPList.txt https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ZeroDot1/CoinBlockerLists/master/list_browser_UBO.txt https://github.com/hoshsadiq/adblock-nocoin-list/blob/master/hosts.txt It updates by itself and it's install and forget At time of writhing, Pi-Hole (with the above subscriptions) is blocking 126 139 Domains vs 93 933 network filters + 43 961 cosmetic from uBlock Origin. I also run uBlock Origin in conjunction with the Pi for when if I go off my Network wih my laptop. The only sad thing that I noted is that uBlock Origin can only accommodate 7 subscriptions under the Custom section where by the Pi-hole seems to be a lot more.
  7. Hosts File Update

    After playing around with Pi-hole Found this entry that contains a massive amount of 3rd party host file entries including Winhelp2002 entries. "almost" like an one host stop file now
  8. Blocking of advertisements

    Emailed the developers and asked them how well Pi-hole and browser based ad blockers work. This was their response So in the end one would still need a browser based ad blocker...
  9. Blocking of advertisements

    I decided to try out the Pi-hole project. Just to see what all the fuzz is about and how it works and got a Pi in the closet that does nothing. Have to say, it's impressive. What Pi-hole does is it blocks all ads, malware, cryptocurrency mining on a network level, not per device with no added ad-ons on the device. Being it a tablet, cellphone or your fridge where one browse the internet. The interface is extremely use friendly, the stats it provide is handy and clear. Quite shocking at times as well. Here are some of my stats. The red block is entries of the 3rd party lists that I have added just to cover more basses. The rest are standard entries provided by the developers. Note: that this is only for about 5 hours give or take of stats and not consecutive browsing. As can see there was 4 clients that made 4,946 DNS requites out of that 1,224 was blocked or Pi-holed as they state it, out of a list of 109,935 blockable entries. To think how big the internet is and we only know of about 109,935 bad/no go domains. (at time if writhing) The only small drawback that I see is that this will only help on your network, and once the device is off your network and onto others network you are back at square one with the ads and so on. Over all I can see this; Providing stats of who is browsing what sites (even gave me the stats of my phone applications DNS requests ) Helping parents blocking snooping kids.... Keeping your browsing save and clean ON ALL devices on your network.
  10. CCleaner

    Hey and welcome to the forum. The following two entries you have nothing to be concern about Windows Explorer - Thumbnail Cache System - Windows Log Files They are normal, day to day entries that are created by your system on a regular basis. For the other two, I just noted on my system, some software uses IE as the default Browser even though IE is not set as your default browser.
  11. Hosts File Update

    Where does one draw the line to protect oneself on the web .
  12. Hosts File Update

    Anybody know anything about this CoinBlockerLists host file ? It is mentioned here bleepingcomputer
  13. Hosts File Update

    They take away a LOT of "Fun and games" sites . Wonder if they do not work with a lot of Adblock, uBlock enc subscriptions, not to duplicate the entries
  14. Winapp2.ini additions

    I am not justifying his behavior (mostly his wording, his frustration I can understand), just justifying the fact that there is an Acrobat 2017 version available. I am dropping this Acrobat debate now. Think I made my point.
  15. Malwarebytes issue

    Strange, it did effect mine (3.3.1.2183) used 10gb of RAM on my end. LOL
