I use a modified HOSTS file as one layer of computer security.
The file I use is from this site (http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm
) and it is updated at least once a month.
My current process is to download the hosts zip file, extract all of the files contained in it, and then execute the mvps.bat file.
Has anyone written (or will anyone write) a script that will:
1. Navigate to the site;
2. Download the current hosts.zip file;
3. Extract all of the files to the default folder; and
4. Execute the mvps.bat file?
There is no need to compare versions or anything else.
I would just use the Task Scheduler to make it happen on the same day every month.
