    It seemed like a perfectly reasonable response to me - Delete the supertrick (i.e. remove the HOSTS file) and see what speeds you get.

    With attitude like that you don't deserve help.

    I think he was asking why the supertrick is messing up his comp. However, it is still good advice to get rid of it and there was no need for the harsh responce to that advice.

    there's a big difference between
    Delete it and see what happends, does it speed up Your PC?
    and
    (i.e. remove the HOSTS file)
    .

    its not messing up my comp. it just slows down totally.

    B.O.T needs to be more clear in his reponces. *plus getting rid of it is not a solution*

    How does one remove the HASH file. Arnt these HASH Files used in the blocking of adds???

    u can see how slow everything is. it took me that long to write this post.i have been here all this time waiting for the page to load.

    it slows ur computer down becos of the size of the supertrick/host file. I think i am correct in saying that it is over 3mb in size, which is hell of a lot of addresses to block.
    thus each time u try to connect to a site, it "check" with the host file to make sure it isnt blocked but cos its so big, it takes a long time...
    if u read the main thread on the supertrick u will see that it does say that u shouldnt use the entire list but choose from it....they are sorted into cats for u...

    bit of advise...dont flame mods or anyone who is giving u some advice else ppl wont bother answering

    edit if u get Lites (hes a person if ur a noob) 2.6 version of kazaa it comes with a host manager which is easy to use, has less BUT the most important (i think) sites to block. Thus having less it wont slow ur pc down (or not as much if u have a slow computer)
    Shut that cuntís mouth or Iíll come over there and fuckstart her head.
