Classic freeware HostsMan gets its yearly update

This is one of those utilties that has been around about as long as I have. It's used in all sorts of computers around the world and can REALLY help out when the old DNS is not working or setup correctly. VERY Old School, but still works like a charm.

Classic freeware HOSTS manager HostsMan has seen its first update since November 2015. The new release now supports eight HOSTS file update sources, including hpHosts, MVPS Hosts, Cameleon and -- new this time -- "Dan Pollock’s host file".

The URLs for "Peter Lowe’s AdServers List" and "Malware Domain List" have been updated, so they should be working again.

The Update Manager dialog can now open local update source files in the editor, making it easier to manage and correct any update problems.

Significant bug fixes include restoring HostMan’s control of the DNS Client service, and giving you full control of your HOSTS export format on Windows Vista and later.
