Important Note: This update contains a change in the prefix in the HOSTS entries to "0.0.0.0" instead of the usual "127.0.0.1".This was done to resolve a slowdown issue with the new Win8.1/IE11 and the HOSTS file.

Thanks for the heads up .

Does it matter if the links resolve to 0.0.0.0 or 127.0.0.1? I'm using Windows 8 and PaleMoon. I rarely ever use IE. For now I've change back to 127.0.0.1. using the swap local host feature in HostXpert.

My reply at Wilders should clear these questions.

Thanks. Everything seems to be working normally leaving the HOSTS file alone.

Thanks for reporting back, balloonshark See Profile Come back is always appreciated.

There zeros prior to the entries prevents you from pinging existing entries to validate the file but I'll personally vouch that it works.
