Hmmm... clicking on the author's web site link above to link to https://clickontyler.com/hostbuddy/ results in an untrusted site certificate error: "clickontyler.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because no issuer chain was provided." So I'm supposed to trust a program that will alter my HOST file, which controls access to sites, to a developer whose own site doesn't even have a trusted certificate??? I don't think so.... Use at your own risk. It may be a very good program, but not worth my time to find out if the developer can't even invest the time to ensure their site has a proper certificate.
