Hosts File ---
What it does ...
The Hosts file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names.
This file is loaded into memory (cache) at startup, then Windows
checks the Hosts file before it queries any DNS servers, which
enables it to override addresses in the DNS. This prevents access
to the listed sites by redirecting any connection attempts back
to the local machine. Another feature of the HOSTS file is its
ability to block other applications from connecting to the Internet,
providing the entry exists.
