No don't put that in your hosts file.
Because you wont be able to look at any updates.


Should be fine, take a look at the domain name.

Domain is microsoft.com.
It will block all from that domain.
DO NOT put that in your hosts file.
I have found other discrepancies like this.
With programs like Limewire.
If you block permanently certain ad sites in your hosts file.
You will not be able to use the program at all.
And of course you can remove it from the hosts.
But it requires restart.
The load the ad site first in there script.
You will start to see this more and more now.
If ad.shityou.com doesn't load first, then the program or site will not work either.

No you don't need to restart, remove the entry and flush the DNS...

Has no affect on p2p apps, unless it's doing something that it shouldn't be doing.

Already do block with a hosts file, never had a problem...

But you're the expert here. hiding

You must block Explorer.exe access to the internet.
I can confirm that. My firewall told me so. I created a rule to block it.

Firewall alert says "'Windows Explorer' from your computer wants to connect to sc.windows.com [207.46.248.249], port 80"

Smartest answer so far.
Why do you speak shit on the internet?
And what does it do for you personally?

Is this currently true? In the past you could turn off the computer's ability to do this. Maybe Microsoft, the monopoly that it is, has solved this "problem."

Sure every post I have mentions goat blood...How do you think we get plasma tv's?

Explorer.exe is very easy to block using SYGATE firewall and it's free.

OP, I agree 100% that m$ is nothing but $pyware.
