    Again, unfortunately, I do not recall which blocker I long ago installed. That's my problem.

I've found that many of the news channels have ads that us a lot of bandwidth and a lot of CPU. One method I've tried was to use an Ad Blocker to stop the ads and allow me to see the content without ads. My friends seem to like AdBlock Plus. Adblock Plus Surf the web without annoying ads

Tip

Block Ads


advertisements are annoying to all of us. They do create revenue for sites, but most of the time ,they are of little importance to the user and all they do is nibble away at your bandwidth. Sometimes, they can show inappropriate content as well. We are going to look at ways to disable or at least hide the ads off the screen with pretty much any of the most used browsers.Ad Blocking In Firefox
Ads come in all forms and pop ups are one of the most annoying ways of which ads make their way on to the screen. Firefox, like most other browsers today, stops pop ups from appearing on the screen.
For blocking of advertisements, there is an extremely useful and well known add-on called Adblock Plus. Get it fromhttp://adblockplus.org/en/. Click on the Installation link to go to that page to download the add-on. You have to click on the Allow button on the right top of the Firefox window to permit the add-on to be downloaded and installed. Restart Firefox.
Once Firefox starts, choose Tools > Add-ons. Click on Options for the Ad block Plus add-on. Click on Filter > Add filter subscription.Use the drop down for Subscription title and choose the lists you want to add and click OK. Follow the steps to add additional subscriptions.Once added, click on Filters > Update all subscriptions. Click OK.
Ads should now be blocked by Firefox, and even if you do find some adsthat do make their way through the filters, right click on the image ofthe ad and click Adblock image…
Flash elements can also be disabled by using the Flashblock add-on forFirefox. This can be downloaded and installed from http://flashblock.mozdev.org. Flash elements will only work when you click on them.

Ad Blocking In Opera
Opera has a built in popup blocker and an ad blocking feature as well.Using the ad blocker is as simple as downloading a text file andputting in the right folder. Opera’s ad blocking works by referring toa file called urlfilter.ini. There are many users who keep regularlymaintained lists of ad hosts and domains.
One of the most famous one and most used ones is Fanboy’s Adblock List(www.fanboy.co.nz/adblock/) Click on the Install now link or visithttp://fanboy.co.nz/adblock/opera/urlfilter.ini. Save the file as it isto a folder and then move it to C:Documents andSettingsYour_User_IDApplication DataOpera_folderprofile. Linuxusers must copy to the .opera folder. When done, restart the browserand ad blocking will be enabled. Visit the site from time to time toupdate your ad block list.

Ad Blocking In Internet Explorer
Internet Explorer has been heavily criticized for letting popups andads run loose but it too has a 3rd party add-on that users candownload. It is called IE7Pro and can be downloaded fromwww.ie7pro.com. Click on the Download Free, download the installer andrun it. In the last few steps of the installation you will be askedwhether you want to enable spellchecking and if you want to setEasyHome as your homepage. Uncheck the boxes if you don’t. Click Nextand finish the installation.
Restart Internet Explorer and you will find an IE7Pro icon in thestatus bar below or a button for IE7Pro Preferences in the toolbarabove. Click it and then on AD Blocker. Enable Flash blocker to blockflash items from web pages. You can also add your own filters in the MyFilters tab. IE7Pro brings many more features than just ad blocking toInternet Explorer. Prefetching and mouse gestures are just some ofthese few features.

Universal Ad Blocking Across Windows
Ads can also be blocked across all browsers and applications running inWindows. This is done through a file called HOSTS that is located inC:WINDOWSsystem32driversetc. Like the urlfilter.ini list that wasused for Opera, similar lists are available for Windows. The listredirects domains to other domains or IPs. This way, none of the adscan be downloaded to your browser. Manual entries can be made byopening the file in a text editor. If you download a HOSTS file, copyit to the path mentioned above.
It is also a good idea to also have a spyware removal utilityinstalled—they not only block ads, but malware and trojans as well.Spybot (www.safer-networking.org) for example is one of such software.Keep it updated and run it from time to time and keep safe distancefrom possibly dodgy links and your PC should be just fine!

How can I block advertisement from internet page?


I'm very careful what I download. The two following apps are safe and a must have. A great add on for your browser is Ghostery. Ghostery detects and blocks tracking technologies to speed up page loads, eliminate clutter, and protect your data. Those trackers are one of the culprits that generate popups. The other is specifically for blocking pop up ads and is called Adblock Plus. Together they will significantly reduce the number of ads you see.

Why can't I open my email without an ad wanting me to log into them.


Install an ad blocker like: Adblock, Adblock Plus, uBlock, uBlock Origins are the most popular ones.
AdBlock
Adblock Plus
uBlock
uBlock Origin
Depending on how much RAM you have depends on which version to install. Four gigs or less only install uBlock, or uBlock Origins as they are smaller and won't slow down your system. AdBlock is the smaller version of AdBlock Plus so not as small as uBlock or uBlock Origins. AdBlock Plus not only handles ads, it handles some malware and pop-ups as well. Requires a device with more than 4 Gb of Ram.

I have 2 pop up ads that periodicaly pop up even after I have closed the ad window. How do I permanently delete them ?


It sounds like your computer might be infected with spy- and/or malware. The easiest way to get rid of this is to use a free program like Adaware (or any other similar program). Adaware is made by Lavasoft, a simple google search should get you a download.

Another option might be to get an add-on for Firefox called "AdBlock Plus". I've been using it myself for years to block out unwanted adds and I do believe it also kills certain popups.
