    Thank you because that article mentioned CEIP in earlier versions
    So I disabled it in my 8.1 Ent.

    Thanks Microsoft.... We can still block the information from being sent via the hosts file though?

    @cactusjuice92: I wish that were true, but evidence is pointing to whitelisted IPs in the HOSTS processing code.

    Watch your back.

    Does that group policy truly disable it?

    same question here! does it really turn it off? also is there any "bad" side effect turning it off?

    If the IPs are known, you could block them at the router level if you have open-source firmware like OpenWRT or DD-WRT.

    Certainly the best bet is to try and block it outside of Windows, MS may let you do many things, but in the end, do we know if it really is doing anything, or just something to make us "think" we have a choice.
