adblocker needed

Recommended Posts

I've dumped Norton 2005 FW and AV for ashampoo. So far, still the ashampoo FW free Vesion, which means I will probably need to start downloading MS's anti-malware tool.

 

However, Norton FW had a built-in adblocker, which, after nearly 10 minutes, I find is a major loss. Most of what I've seen as adblockers have a host of other things as well, such as pop-up blockers - which I assume will cause problems with these boards, for starters.

 

Any suggestions?

Did you get the WinOptimizer Lynn? If so, check in Tuning Tools, IP Spam Blocker

No, they have a somewhat bewildering array of different programs, and I wasn't sure where it was. But "Spam" isn't where I would expect to look to block Flash. It's tempting to delete all registry entries & files for Flash, but I know from experience the abomination will simply rebuild them.

 

There are occasional places where Flash is useful, but for the most part it is simply a means of putting in obnoxious commercials.

Neither ashampoo nor WebRoot's SpySweeper seemed quite what I was after.

 

I have found, downloaded, installed, and done a sweep with SuperAdBlocker - and now things are better than they were before :)

 

Since it can only be said to be in use subsequent to the sweep, I've been running it less than 10 minutes, but the only modification I would make at this point is I've GOT to pay for it. I NEED it. :) :)
