    why not just opt out? go to www.doubleclick.com and click the privacy link, on that page you'll find the opt out link. ad-aware recognizes the opt out cookie and will not remove it.

    I simply block Doubleclick at my firewall, and no more annoying cookies!

    That should stop any future cookies from Doubleclick, period. And any pop-ups will just be blank pages that you can click away easily. If you want, cut and paste the whole following list. Its my hosts file and takes care of a huge percentage of the ads and such. (It includes the Doubleclick entries, but mutliple entries doesn't hurt you - just them. =) Oh, and the blank entries are where you can enter new URLs of annoying places. Just stick the URL beside the 127.0.0.1 and you're golden.

    Hey guys,

    How exactly do I cut and paste that list into my folder?
    I'm no computer whiz so I'm sorry if this seems like a silly question.

    There's a directory called "windows" or "winnt" or something like that in every ms-windows system. Now, whatever the name in your machine is, it has a subdirectory called "system32", which has a subdirectory called "drivers", which in turn has a subdirectory called "etc". If you don't understand directory, replace it with folder [​IMG].
    In that last directory (folder) is a file with no extension, that's called "hosts". That file is used by the TCP/IP system of your PC to find certain "predefined" URL's.
    Open that file with Wordpad (or Notepad), preferably.
    It will have some comment lines and most probably a real (not commented-out) line saying:
    127.0.0.1 localhost
    Copy and paste the above lines to that file, below the localhost entry, and save/close it.
    That's all.
    Good luck!
    Cees

    Hostfiles is kind of like an address book in your computer for IP addresses. The first thing to understand about internet addresses is that the ones most people are familiar with like google.com are not the real addresses. Computers love to use numbers, and IP addresses are no different. All internet addresses are really a string of numbers like 207.173.159.237. That's what your web browser is really using when it looks for a web site. Since it's hard for most people to remember a string of numbers like that, every web site has a normal looking IP address to match the numerical one.
    A good analogy is to compare host files to a phone book. If you already know someone's phone number, you dial it directly. If you don't, then you look it up in the phone book, but you aren't looking for numbers. You look up Circuit City and you get a number to like 555 1234. Then you dial the number and make the phone ring at Circuit City.
    When you put hometheaterforum.com in you web browser, it does the same thing. Since your computer doesn't know what the number is for hometheaterforum.com, it first looks in your hostfiles to see if it is there. If it can't find it there, then it sends a query to your internet provider to check their list. They send back the numerical address, 207.173.159.237, and then your computer knows where to go.
    By adding false entries into your hostlist, you can keep unwanted sites from appearing on your computer. If you put an entry into your hostlist for doubleclick.net, then your computer will go to where your hostlist says. Since you put in a bogus entry for doubleclick, you get a blank page because your computer "dialed the wrong number". The site that sent the pop up ad or cookie thinks you got their ads since it has no way of knowing your computer went to the wrong place to get the ad.
    If changing your hostfiles is a bit much for you, then try out Spyblocker to block out the unwanted garbage.
    Just be carefull changing your hostfile since you can misdirect sites that you want to go to also.

    Easiest way to find the file "Hosts" is to go to Start-> Search-> Files or Folders, then enter hosts as the file to look for. Use Notepad to edit it. Go to the text above and highlight it using your mouse. Copy the text and then go to Notepad and paste it in. Save the file with the new text and you are good to go.
     
  13. It is a lot easier if you just use the program "Pop Up Killer" Do a google search.

    The hosts file is in a different location in Win95/98/ME than in NT/2000/(probably XP). In 95/98/Me, you'll find the hosts file in the Windows directory (e.g. C:Windows). On NT & 2000 you'll find it in C:WinntSystem32DriversEtc. I don't know where it is in XP, but check both these places.

    Anthony_Gomez the hosts file isn't about killing pop ups (it is one side effect) it makes the companies that host the ads and cookies etc disappear into a black hole
