How can I quickly swap between my MVPS Hosts file and Microsoft's, when troubleshooting the problem of no longer being able to access a site? I sometimes can't access a retailer's site, via a 'cashback' site, as, I presume, the tracking company used by the 'cashback' site is blocked by MVPS.
At the moment I use the Microsoft method to restore the default Hosts file, but that is a pain as it requires a re-boot.
I've been told HostsXpert or HostsMan would do the job, but I wouldn't know where to start with these.
Is it true that, from what I've read at http://www.mvps.org/...p2002/hosts.htm, because my desktop P.C. is not part of a domain, I should disable the "DNS Client", whatever that is?
I currently have a shortcut, on my Desktop, to the MVPS file, to manually disable individual url entries, but I can't disable every one and then re-enable them.
Can anyone help?
