Effective? Last I heard the system changed so often that every 'effective' solution was obsolete a few weeks later. Like people would change settings, and then it would change them back, or they'd use host files, and then MS would change the IP/domain, so idk anymore. I think a lot of people have actually kind of given up, which is what they were going for I guess.
