Quick Website Blocker

The software is designed to (yes, you're right) quickly block websites from visiting from the current computer. The software just adds line "127.0.0.1 [TAB] [website you have entered]" to the "system32\drivers\etc\hosts" path. You have to have administrator rights to perform this operation.

Using is simple: just enter website you want to block and click the button, then confirm the decision.

The software runs on Windows (tested on 7, should work perfectly on XP and Vista).

Changelog:
04.13.2015 - first version

Nice idea.   :Thmbsup:

How does this work?
Does the site "still try to load", or does it crash "hard and fast"?

Rather than SomeNaughtySite, I'd want to put in stuff like Something.Google.com that besides the tracking concerns, seems also to be a slow load component on a lot of sites.

The status bar on the bottom of browsers is really useful to tell you the random things a page tries to load. So if I used this to chip in a bunch of things, maybe that will speed up my browsing?

"127.0.0.1 [TAB] [website you have entered]"

Site just doesn't load or more precisely it redirects/connects to localhost

Ath:
What else does it bring for that size? It's rather large at nearly 2 MB (imho). Is that because of the development environment used?
