This is my custom hosts lists for Ab-Solution. It includes Crazy Max‘s windows spying blocklists, which block a lot of Windows spying at router level, as well as various ad, spam, and malware lists. Ab-Solution will update these lists once a week and you can set it and forget it.
This has been tested for some months and has not caused issues with any of the software or websites I use. More popular lists caused issues with the redirects of some sites and were removed, plus it significantly more user friendly to block those using ublock and umatrix compared to using using putty to ssh and add whitelist entries in ab-solution.
