Note that the hosts file is named "hosts" and is located in the windows
directory in the subdirectory "system32\drivers\etc".

Hi Jeff. Thanks for info.. My next post will illustrate how I know very little about the IT arena… I am old school.. I can make many radios hum data at 2000 miles.. But have a hard time with networking… You could teach me a lot Jeff… Thanks again jerry
For those familiar with network/hostname resolution, just use hosts file redirection.....
or you can read over this for more details/instructions:
It will cover a technique that should work for most everyone. There are other approaches depending on how robust your firewall is.
There's also a possibility that simply renaming autoupdate.exe (in the appropriate RMS folder) may do the trick, but I haven't had the time to test this. You would have to keep deleting it after each manual update which will probably drop a new autoupdate.exe back in there on you.
