Default Using the MVP's Hosts file causes problem...

Hello Mike,

The site being blocked was an '' one. I wasn't able to
find this in I.E. but a user of Firefox told me of it. I edited the hosts
file by placing the # before this entry: '
#[MVPS.Criteria]', and achieved the desired result with the BBC news

This satisfies me.
