127.0.0.1 www.yahoo.com #for testing
I'm running Windows XP SP 2 and have disabled DNS Client service to force windows to use my hosts file. However it is not doing that! I can still browse to yahoo.com and get all the ads.
This is my work computer and I'm behind a proxy. I suspect it has something to do with my proxy.
How can I force windows to look at HOSTS file before anything else? Or is there any other way to block these sites?
Any help would be appreciated...
