My mom frequently goes on Vietnamese website and there are a lot of flashy annoying ads on the side. Is there any way to block these ads using AdBlock Plus' filters, This Link, and inPrivate Filtering? I've seen one for regular ad's on this site.
http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r22124619-...block-plus-list
It involves writing the filtered websites into xml and importing it into inPrivate Filtering. Can some one do it for the vietnamese one? or any other alternative

Do no block ads. These ads enable a website earn its running cost. If you disable the ads, you will kill the web site. It is equivalent to stealing.

Why not just install Firefox and get Adblock Plus?
It's an add-on and it's free. Firefox is more secure, faster and safer than IE.

I've never seen any ad or pup-up for 3 years now, and I must say it's awful when I use someone else's PC and see all those ads all over the screen.
Give it a try. :thumbsup:

I would use an Ad Blocker - The Internet Police will not come to your house and ask if you read all the ads etc. -
There are many infections hidden in advertising (not always deliberate) so my blocker will not show many ads - They just come up as "Internet Explorer cannot " etc - These ads have been deemed "bad" by my operating system - It is like blocking certain sites - I am sure the owners of Xhamster, and similar sites, do not mind me not reading their ads -
My personal response only G@R%@&E -

Thank You - :thumbsup:

I use my hosts file to block advertisements from sites, however, I am unable to block anything from doubleclick.com it prevents many sites from streaming audio.

No it isn't. What it is equivalent to, is protecting yourself from a significant security threat. Even high profile, reputable sites have recently (albeit unwittingly) served up malware via advertising. They can, and should be blocked with extreme prejudice.

Agree 100%. Firefox + Adblock Plus and you'll forget what ads look like.
