Careful! Windows 10's 'Check for updates' button may download beta code

Microsoft revealed that those users who click the “Check for updates” button (Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update) are opted in to testing new Windows features on a one-time basis, if they happen to click the button during the third and fourth week of the month. Microsoft calls those updates “C” and “D” releases, and issues them to those who are “seeking” them when they click the update button.

Another reason not to use it online, offline and air gapped workstation possibly. With 2 w7 capable apu systems i could switch to 10 1607 quite easily.

I use hosts ad blocking, unneded addons for 3 browsers. That would be good also if ad-block addons developers makes hosts "editing" software that adds ad domains to the hosts files, like AdAway for Android.

Care to share your hosts file? pastebin :)
I'm not allowed due to size.

Tell me if it works for you:
https://www62.zippyshare.com/v/vPPCs0nw/file.html
256 kb compressed.

You could see some adds due to localization or country specific ads/sites.
Blocks most youtube ads, at start or when playinga video an ad could play but not too often and my screen is clean.

If there is a page or site not loaded, take a look at the hosts file becuase i have blocked some domains for programs calling home.
