I just installed the new microsoft spyware tool

seems to be helping as adaware used to always find a few pests when I run it, I delete them and they would get placed back in pretty quick, microsoft tool seems to stop re infection.

question, looking at some of the tools, I found a section called host file redirections. hundreds of these guys there all look like ad servers and double clik is mentioned a ton. can I block them and speed up my computer, the delete options are grayed out on my version of the software

thanks for any information on host files and the new spyware tool

thanks

Do you know what those host files are? Do you know how to check there validity? Those are the important questions...doc
