The LVC-HostsManager seems to be the first OSS-HostManager that exist!

What we already included in the program:

- Tools: 'Reset Hosts File' to Windows-Defaults
- Tools: 'Flush DNS Cache'
- Tools: 'Disable DNS Service' (needed by bigger hosts-files)
- Tools: 'Set DNS Server to Google'
- Tools: 'Set DNS Server to OpenDNS'
- Tools: 'Set DNS Server to Custom Value'
- Help: A Offline-Help that pulls the screenshots (temporary) from the web

And what else?

You can find the homepage of the app here:
Or the repo on GitHub here:
Here is the Readme.html:

It's all not really finished, but's OSS... ;-)

And as many people don't know what's a 'HostsManager' is, we 're-branded' the app as 'LVC-Adblocker'!

Here is the homepage:
And here is the repo on GitHub:

If anybody is interested in helping to improve the programs, any help is welcome!
