Hi if you want to download and install a host file to block Adds and other bad sites,

Try this one click here

read the instructions,

This is the one I use but it does give you some Cannot display this web page messages but they are only adverts,

I all so use Hostman {it is on the site}

Thank you much mfletch. That is the host file I am trying to run but very confused...very old age I'm afraid..Could you,if you have the time ,please lay it out for me in in idiot mode.
I have tried several times but cannot get to grips on how to install and run.

Many thanks

This is HostsToggle click here and it is perfectly safe.

Once installed there will be an icon in the Notification Area. Right click that icon to enable/disable your HOSTS file.
