    Don't know how reliable it is but Opera provides an online test to "Check if your browser is affected by cryptojacking."

    Cryptojacking Test

    They state: "The test is safe and only conducted for raising awareness of the mining issue. All cryptocurrencies we receive from mining in this test will be transferred to a charity organization."

    You're welcome Cliff.

    And to remind Insiders, that the last build cleaned hosts file Don't think upgrades did that before.

    To use the ZeroDot1 list I assume copy and paste is way to go.


    Thank you.


    Never mind... I see the zip is just a way to get to file. Cut and paste necessary.

    OK, if I can explain. I kept the OEM Original file renamed to Hosts.txt and do a wholesale copy and paste into that and then "Save As" Hosts in the folder. That's just me being me.
