    I have been using Anti-WebMiner. I simple execute antiwebminer.exe /c on start up, and it automatically updates my HOST file. The program also allows manual updates.

    I do , too. BUT.....

    Anti-Webminer contains < 500 entries. The Gitlab file has over 2600. Here's a copy of both in my hosts file. I also have entries to block the annoying ads in Skype.

    hosts.zip

    Your choice.

    I see. I remember years back (pre-Win 10), when I used Hostman to update my HOST file (sources: MVS Hosts and/or Malwarebytes hpHosts) and the list got very large, my Net speed became as slow as molasses. You don't experience that?

    For anti-malware and other purposes, especially for mobile devices, I always go for Steven Black's lists.
