tested with CIS v8.2 , it is still valid
Latest CIS
Win 10 64

I tried Dan Pollock, MVPS & hpHosts with CIS Web Filter & all worked fine.

Can you tell me all the 3 hosts details i.e what all the 3 hosts contains i.e ads, tracking, malware, social networking, etc...?
I tried the official website but couldn't find what all the hosts contains?

@Umbra Thank you for the helpful tutorial and it worked for me just fine. One thing I would like to ask is that is it really possible to block MVPS Hosts lists by directly entering the addresses on Routers web block page ?? So that even if I don't use Comodo I can continue with blocking the malicious/ads sites.

should be possible, but it a extremely long procedure since you have to add the IPs one by one, unless the router can manage lists.

IPs are not needed, but needs to enter each URL manually and click "Add" that needs to be done more than 1000 times to add all MVPS Hosts list URLs :D

Sorry guys for refreshing such an old thread :oops: but do I have to follow all the steps for each update of MVPS hosts file?
