Hello Canova,
Welcome back. You can take following steps to block a specific website.
a) Go to: C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc.
b) Double-click “hosts” file to open it. Choose to open with Notepad.
c) At the bottom of the file, type 127.0.0.1, followed by the URL of the website you want to block. For example, if you wanted to block “Google.com” you would enter “127.0.0.1 Google.com”. Do not put either "http:" or "www" in front of the names of websites you need to block; If you type http or www, the website will not being blocked.
d) Save the hosts file and restart your computer. Any attempt to visit the site you blocked in Chrome or any other browser will result in an error message.

By the way, I am glad to tell you that the new version will be release soon, please keep an eye on our official news. :D

Hello Ivy,
Thanks for your fast reply. I try your method, but I am afraid that I am unable to modify it because there's a lot of websites listed in the hosts file.
There is no 127.0.0.1 in the file.

The hosts files was modified by Anvi AD Blocker. Please restore to the default hosts file.
I attached the default host file. Please download it and replace the modified one.
