The problem with hosts files is they don't allow wildcards. So when they point to you a dynamically made up server name, ie a43c56.adhack.com, it won't match. There are two better ways to do it. You can do wildcard matching in a proxy.pac file. You can create your own internal dns server, and create fake zone files that point *.doubleclick.net to 0.0.0.0. I like the second one because it automatically applies to all of my devices, tablets, phones, etc on the local network.
