Anyone have any suggestions for a good/safe adblock program for IE9? I tried Simple Adblock the other day and it gave me malware that disabled Google - kept getting some 404 error whenever opened Google from any source. Restored system to before downloading their program and all is well again. Would like to get rid of all the ads using IE but don't want to go throught the malware drill again. Suggestions?

Edit: Moved topic from Windows 7 to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Tried using the built in Tracking Protection List feature? Take a look here: How to configure IE9 tracking protection

Thanks Animal. Did not know of that option so just followed that tutorial. Hope it helps. I'm tired of seeing the "reduce my belly fat" ad :-)
