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 from 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 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( Click on the Install now link or visit 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 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 ( 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!

Why do these ads keeping popping up?

You can reduce (or eliminate) the occurrence of pop-up ads by setting an Option in your browser that "Blocks Pop-Up" ...
If you're using IE Explorer, click on "Tools" (top right corner of screen - tool bar), put your cursor on "Pop-Up Blocker" (in the drop down window) and click on "Pop-Up Blocker Setting". Then, at the bottom of the window, set the "Blocking Level" at HIGH - which blocks all pop-up from showing up on your screen.

You can do it for other browsers as well ... e.g. Mozilla Firefox ...
click on Open Menu (the 3 horizontal bar on top right corner), select Options (in the drop down window), select the "Content" tab ... and check of the box (on the top) that says Block Pop-Up's, and then close.

Often pop-up's show up because your activity (viewing, searching, etc.) on the browser is tracked. Yes you can turn off tracking too !
This tracking info is used by "ads spawning" processes/apps to select which ads is displayed on your computer. So, you can reduce the amount of ad's by deleting cookies (particularly for these ads programs) every time you're done and close your browser ... just like you remove your (browsing) history, temporary files, cache information, etc.

Is there a way to block pop up ads on the garmin nuvi 2460LMT?

The pop up ads come on with the power cord in the car which has the traffic antenna built in to it. If the battery is full and you do not need the traffic you can disconnect the power cord and the ads will not appear. I found on my LMT that the traffic is always wrong anyway. Also if you do not click on the ad it will go away in a few minutes. Also if you click on your screen the speed or driving or the + or - then go back it disappears. I guess the free traffic is really not free(the ads pay).
Thanks for using FixYa
