I just wanted to announce, that I made a self-updating hosts-file for anyone who wants to get rid of advertisements / scam-sites / shocker-sites etc… Just hit this link and you are good to go. =)
Open your local hosts-file, here is how:
1. Get Notepad++ here
2. Open the File-Explorer and navigate to C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\ and open the file named “hosts” with Notepad++
1. use vim or nano on a terminal / tty and open /etc/hosts
Please copy and paste the lines from my hosts-file AT THE END of your local one! DO NOT overwrite it.
/!\ Remember to make a backup of your local file.
Have a great afternoon
