    Are we supposed to copy these updated list into our Host file correct? Sorry, I'm just trying to get this setup.

    Read the thread from the beginning, and download the shortcut I made(it makes opening hosts correctly much easier).
    If you use the host file, for each update you will need to delete the old, then paste the new in, so it is recommended, that you always keep it as the last section, to make it easier when making changes, as it is updated every couple of day's(or when ever you get around to looking).

    When I update I prefer using Edge over Chrome, as Edge has a "select all" right click option that Chrome doesn't.

    The hosts file you've added has all of the text jumbled together in note pad. Can this be separated to a more appropriate layout?

    This list (think it's the same one) opens fine in browser...

    I copy it from Edge, and then paste it in notepad using my shortcut(download in first post), and have no problems.
    I got a warning today that they posted using ANSI instead of Unicode for the encoding. when I wanted to save, but clocked ok and it save correctly though.

    You can also use Internet Explore and manually change the encoding, and that will solve the problem:

    The link is now opening in both Edge and Chrome. Last night in Chrome it automatically downloaded as a hosts_browser file rather than opening the link.
