For example if i want to block google from tracking and colecting information/ connecting to my network or pc, and also block microsoft update

Copy Paste this in hostfile:

0.0.0.0 google-analytics.com
google-analytics.com
127.0.0.1 google-analytics.com
127.0.0.1 www.google-analytics.com
127.0.0.1 google-analytics.com
127.0.0.1 ssl.google-analytics.com

I have no idea if this is workin and if those adress are correct, anyone there can explain how to corectly use hostfile to block tracking websites like google analytics or microsoft update
Where can i find working URLs that i can block and are there some common urls that everyone should block in general?
