    Default Blocking web addresses

    I use XP and the XP firewall seems to be blocked so I have dowloaded Zone Alarm. Every time I start up the computer tries to connect to the ISP. The adressess that I would like to block but can't are - namy.dyndns.dk. and salvage.a73kf.433nds.info. and slrec.d67e9cggg.info. - Can some tell me how to block them without having to buy a full version of Zone Alarm please. Cheers and thanks - JohnMelbourne

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)

    Hi

    Using either the Windows XP or Zone Alarm firewalls, these can be easily blocked in the Windows Host File. Open C\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc and right click the hosts. Then uncheck the readand apply and ok. Then use open and use notepad. After the Microsoft blurb, there is 127.0.0.1 local host. Then just add the three sites using 127.0.0.1 as the address.Then close the notepad and save the changes by Yes. Click the Properties and enable read and apply and ok. Then reboot. It should look like this:

    # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
    #
    # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
    # entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
    # be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
    # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
    # space.
    #
    # Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
    # lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
    #
    # For example:
    #
    # 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
    # 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

    127.0.0.1 localhost
    127.0.0.1 namy.dns.dk
    127.0.0.1 salvage.a73kf.433nds.info
    127.0.0.1 sirec.d67e9cggg,info






    More information about host files can be found at wikipedia or....

    If there are inappropiate sites listed ( malware and such) then these can be removed manually or with antispy scanners such as SpyBot S&D or Windows Defender.

    Since there is contact made by these by something in the PC, then perhaps using some of the advice from spywarewarrior.com will help to remove the malware....

    Hi

    Yes Just select the post first and then use the Reply, after signing into the forum first of course.

    Also consider the freeware ProtoWall. Used for P2P, but can be used with Blocklist Converter lists and any suitable list. But it very simple to manually add the sites and there ranges. Mine has 7.1 billion sites blocked and still counting.....


    Take care and post again with any security questions or just to participate in the forum!
