I really wasn't sure where to post this and hopefully I have the right topic for it. I don't want to completely block out a website (if that's possible) but block out the ads and other intrusive, I guess third party landmines that might be present within it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks ^_^

What browser do you use?

I am aware of very few if any ways to do what you are requesting with Internet Explorer. Please anyone correct me if there are ways.

If you use Firefox then there are several add-on`s that should do the trick for you.

I use Mozilla and Internet Explorer, so if you could tell me how to do it for both, that would be even better. I have Ad Block Plus for Mozilla and someone also told me to get No Script. All I want to do is to be able to go to my favorite anime streaming site and not get attacked by another virus like "whitesmoke toolbar"

Hi,

I've used simple adblock in ie before, if that's the browser you're using, seemed pretty good to me.

It's nice to be important, it's much more important to be nice.

AdBlock Plus and No Script are very good add-ons.
To check, if the site is safe, I strongly recommend, you install WOT: http://www.mywot.com/en/download

Thank you Mrfingerz. Was totally unaware of simple adblock. But basically only using IE for MS updates limits my need`s to do much with it.

:thumbsup: To Adblock Plus and especially No Script. A bit of a learning curve when it comes to No Script but well worth the effort IMO.

Just my .02, but I am not a fan at all of any form of site advisor. Have seen to many links with excellent information and d\l`s available be rated poorly for really no reason. Thinking back, I believe a page right here on BC was rated poorly\dangerous because of a link to a page which contained d\l`s with multiple uses.
