4.) Change the file filter drop down box from "Text Documents (*.txt)" to "All Files (*.*)"

5.) You will now see the "hosts" file. Select that and click open.

6.) You will see an entry in your hosts file: 127.0.0.1 localhost.

Under that entry paste the following:
Code:
127.0.0.1     m1.nedstatbasic.net
127.0.0.1     m1.webstats4u.com
127.0.0.1     m1.webstats.motigo.com


7.) Save the "hosts" file, restart your browser. You should be all set!


I did that for Windows XP and it did not work. Any other hint?

If all else fails, I recommend the Ad Block Plus plug-in for Firefox.

If you don't already have Firefox (it's much more secure than IE) you can download it here:
http://www.mozilla.org

The Ad Block Plus plug-in is located here:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1865

Once installed and you have restarted your browser:

1.Right click the "ABP" logo in the upper right hand portion of your browser screen.
2.Select preferences
3.Click Add Filter
4.Insert the following three URL's (one per filter):
http://m1.webstats.motigo.com/*
m1.nedstatbasic.net*
m1.webstats4u.com*
5.Click "Apply" and "Ok"

Voila! No more popups!
