How to get rid of adverts


Disable Active X on your browser. Install virus and malware protection software.

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 to get rid of ads on my screen when I go to my in box in Yayoo mail


You can either temporarily hide the ads that keep popping up on your Yahoo Mail page or block them permanently. To know how, refer to the steps below.

To temporarily hide ads (for free email accounts):
1)Sign in to your Yahoo Mail account
2)When, while viewing your list of emails or a particular email, an ad pops up, you can see a right-facing arrow between your email and the advertisement. Click on this arrow.
3)The ad will get hidden temporarily.
(Important: This blocks the ads temporarily only and as soon as you perform the actions like refreshing the Yahoo Mail page, marking a particular email as spam, replying to an email, or just clicking on any of the sections in the navigation-menu located on the left of the page, a new ad may pop up again).

To permanently remove graphical and text ads:
Yahoo Mail has recently come up with "Yahoo Ad Free Mail" service to enable you to get rid of graphical and text ads on a permanent basis when viewing your Yahoo Mail account from a computer. You need to sign up for Yahoo Ad Free Mail account before starting using this service.
(Note: Before signing up for Yahoo Ad Free Mail account, please check if the service is available in your region. Also, even after subscribing to the service, the subscribers may still get the text ads that come up on Yahoo Mail on a mobile web browser and the text ads that come up in the "Basic Mail" interface of Yahoo Mail on a computer. To know what Basic Mail is, refer to the following Yahoo webpage: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/mail-for-desktop/basic-mail-sln5171.html)
To know more about Yahoo Ad Free Mail service, refer to the following Yahoo webpage:
https://help.yahoo.com/kb/mail-for-desktop/adnbspfree-mail-sln15803.html
To know more about blocking ads on Yahoo Mail, refer to the following Yahoo webpage:

Computer pop ups?


Not the most descriptive problem.

So lets guess, me thinks when you are using a internet browser program to access web sites like www.fixya.com?? Then at random times additional browser windows pop up trying to sell something etc.

Most likely your PC is infected. Stop using Internet Explorer (IE) and use Chrome/Firefox. Then with in your new browser add the extension/plugin Ad Block or Ad Block Plus both are free.

Then head on over to www.filehippo.com and download ccleaner and marlwarebytes. Install one at a time, malwarebytes first. Have it update and then select full scan/ Come back in a few hours and check all the little boxes it found problems on.

Refresh on my computer


I've never done this myself, but if you can get an RSS "feed" from the page, you can set it to refresh every 15 minutes in the "content" tab of internet explorer properties.

I have an unknown trojan virus thats keeps poping up trying to get me to installed anitspyware how do i get rid of it


  1. AntiVirus - AVG Free Edition
  2. AntiSpware - Spyware Blaster
  3. AntiAdware - Ad-Aware
I recommend using all three of these programs, by doing so you have all your bases covered. AVG Free edition is an awesome program, it updates daily so you can catch even the newest viruses. Best of all it's free! Spyware Blaster is another great program, I've found that this will pick up a lot of things other programs may miss, again it's a free program. Ad-Aware is another great program, this program will also clear out any tracking cookies you may have acquired over time. I use all three of these personally and install them on every computer I build or service.
  • Where do I get these great free programs.
If you haven't visited CNET's http://www.download.com already you are missing out on tons of great free programs, they have everything from games demo's to music editing software, screen savers, and of course antivirus, antispyware, and antiadware programs. This site is updated frequently and includes many reviews on their content. u could simply go to this page and use the search box to find the above mentioned programs, but I'll make it easy for you, follow the below links.

For AVG anti virus-http://www.download.com/AVG-Anti-Virus-Free-Edition/3000-2239_4-10320142.html?tag=pop.software
For Spyware Blaster-http://www.download.com/SpywareBlaster/3000-8022_4-10196637.html?tag=lst-2
For AdAware-http://www.download.com/Ad-Aware-2007/3000-8022_4-10045910.html?tag=pop.software

DELL DIMENSION 3100 PROBLEM


Even the best pop-up blocker may let a few through. If you are getting more than a few (especially if they are occurring when you are not actively browsing the web), I would highly recommend downloading, installing, and scanning with a free program called SpyBot Search & Destroy. This will remove any spyware/adware that might be causing your added pop-ups.

Drivers for a Insignia d400a CPU


Sandrew, argh, are you kidding me?

Check intel's website, you have an intel D845GVSR motherboard. Here is a better web page!

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Filter_Results.aspx?strTypes=all&ProductID=1065&OSFullName=Windows*+XP+Professional&lang=eng&strOSs=44&submit=Go%21

You'll have to search around but all your drivers are in intel's website. Except for one, and thats your media reader, you'll have to use to one supplied on your recovery disk that came with the D400A.

Cheers,
