When you run it from time to time, it checks your Hosts file, after it's been optimized by HostsMaster, using a database which is up-dated monthly.
HostsCleaner thoroughly scans YOUR Hosts file, whether it's one you've downloaded from an on-line source, or created yourself, and removes non-responsive DEAD domains from it; the ONLY proviso is that YOUR Hosts File MUST have been optimized using the HM (HostsMaster) Utility.
This program will crash if it detects a non-HM optimized Hosts File.
HostsCleaner can reduce the size of your file and this way it will only improve your Internet browsing speed. When it completes its run, HC will write a new "cleaned up" Hosts File and backup.
Running HM.exe first is mandatory, as HM will create a fresh backup to your existing Hosts File which will be named Hosts.org where org = original. HC will automatically detect your Windows OS version and then execute itself in a DOS window.
If you should get an error message you do not understand, make sure you have run HM, our HostsMaster Utility, and that both the file named Hosts AND Hosts.org exist in the same default path. See below for the proper path which is based on your operating system.
