I'm refering to
http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm

I'm using this file and appriciate it.
But there is one problem, it's blocking sponsored site's like when I do a
search for an item in Altavista, the site don't get displayed..

Exampel:
http://av.rds.yahoo.com/_ylt=A9ibyK9aBJlC07cAAEwDRaMX;_ylu=X3oDMTBzZnMycjZhBHBndANhdl93ZWJfcmVzdWx0BHNlYwNvdi10b3A-/SIG=1m4bh16ot/EXP=1117410778/**http%3a//www21.overture.com/d/sr/%3fxargs=15KPjg1yFSqYK9k7PyMPiIRvydhRlLit%255Fho5dzTckoX5YBpDtzD7U7cWPwpdp6Mp16mlKrqpHKq7ppSvGq2Mu6LFyTJ0jyTL%252DjlZqXwIo8NrnwIKVKhrsvzu%255FtnIJPP2lECl%252DBS9u36py%255FU6DxOApMivwLzRSPr6g6ffqG9pRGU7fZ2VF%255F%252DlzXIp8M%252D%252DN80I6Qceo%255Fd8Mget%255FsllXld5Qyy9995ulQDRN2cXb36W9cmmqlJTB7o6u%255FdY8KvcTnxvbsZOv7ma0saECFtrdu6xeQwHaLjfMjNXfQ%252DZtvhg1VFfSiITeG0C8fsb6dmrGiSdFivi6oV8XZCXXydwR2fFMRA%252DGtYgCcKDBgpk%255FBKtYCIKbtrz77Q6zBSmdIJQZT%252DZHlZp0LlyT8n30vBiSGViHuiC9fY7Q5iEaX8iXX9hQ5m%252DpD%252D%255FbcMtBLvJ%252DBmUPcVXRTrQqq49%252D2Wc%252DeoVVDvHJ0qbRCWI8FwrYV4kcL6yOLyPPc5Jjiw5e7W87xlmRUqum7eHAFWw%252E%252E%26yargs=www.real-rhapsody.net

I need to manually enter the site.
How do I edit my Host file to cancell this stop's?

Remove this item from the HOSTS file...

www21.overture.com

However, since www21.overture.com is listed in the MVPS HOSTS file, it must
not be a very nice place to visit.

My advice would be to stay away from www21.overture.com you may get some
gifts that you don't want.

Hope this helps. Let us know.
