OK ... will leave the HOSTS File alone ... I had removed that entry after it didn't seem to do anything.

Add - ProxRocks ... I did not see that there were two more replies from you as I was replying to #10.

I will work with that entry that you provided and not use any browser extensions.

From post #12:

do not use browser "extensions" to change your user agent...

USE PROXOMITRON'S Exceptions-U FILE TO CHANGE THE USER AGENT...

Thanks again ... will work on this next.

Add - The MVPS HOSTS seems to be OK with XP on my machine ... pages load very fast but I will check the DNS Client Service. I just checked and it is on Automatic.

They do have information for:

Windows 10/8 requires special instructions
Windows 7 requires special instructions
Win Vista requires special instructions

It may be a slowdown problem for those three OS's.

This information is posted at the MVPS HOSTS web page ...

http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.htm

"Windows DNS Client Service

In most cases the DNS Client Service is not needed, it is recommended to turn it off. These instructions are intended for a single (home-user) PC. If your machine is part of a "Domain", check with your IT Dept. before applying this work-around. This especially applies to Laptop users who travel or bring their work machines home. Make sure to reset the Service (if needed) prior to connecting (reboot required) to your work Domain ...

To resolve this issue (manually) open the "Services Editor"

Start | Run (type) "services.msc" (no quotes)
Win8 users - Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services
Scroll down to "DNS Client", Right-click and select: Properties - click Stop
Click the drop-down arrow for "Startup type"
Select: Manual (recommended) or Disabled click Apply/Ok and restart.
-----------------------------------------------------------------

I have been using the MVPS HOSTS File for years and never noticed that little paragraph. I will put it on Manual but will turn it off if it never comes on, will see if I have any problems ... I guess Manual would be off and if needed for some reason, it would Start. I will read about the DNS Client Service later ... I'm not on any domain, just a home setup.
