You can use a hosts file to block everything unwanted, too.

These lines can be added to the hosts file:

Code: Select all

127.0.0.1 google-analytics.com
127.0.0.1 www.google-analytics.com
I also see ssl.google-analytics.com in my Hosts file. I use the MVPS HOSTS ( https://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.htm ) plus a few of my own thrown in. It is updated regularly.

Don't abuse the HOSTS file. You will just make DNS Lookups slower. Also forget anything you blocked then come back here and bitch about it.
