Hi Saqib,

If you define those hosts and place them into the Windows hosts files 
(located in %SystemRoot%\system32\drivers\hosts) and "assign" an IP 
address of 127.0.0.1, the browser will attempt to connect to the 
computer it's running on instead of the remote server which delivers the 
ads.  Assuming the local computer isn't running a web server, the 
connection will be rejected and no ads will load.  If the computer is 
running a web server, chances are very good that it won't have a 
document at the same address referenced by the ad URL, so it won't show 
up anyways.

HTH,
-j
