Rename hosts.sam to just hosts.

That will do it!!

Add your sites to block below the last line, which as you see is

127.0.0.1 localhost

Add your sites after that and everything should work after you reboot.

Please let me know how it works for you!!

Thanks zack371 you are brilliantly excellent!!!!.
Whenever I enter the url it comes up "We can't find www.southportweekender.co.uk" then "cannot find server" and "the page can not be displayed"
Just what I wanted. Many thanks, this is much appreciated

127.0.0.1 www.doubleclick.net
127.0.0.1 ad.doubleclick.net
127.0.0.1 m.doubleclick.net
127.0.0.1 phase2media.doubleclick.net
127.0.0.1 ln.doubleclick.net
127.0.0.1 ad.au.doubleclick.net
127.0.0.1 ad.uk.doubleclick.net
127.0.0.1 www.valueclick.com
