Hi to everyone. I'm sure others are just as tired of all those ads as I am. Can anyone suggest any good free adblockers that would work with my OS Win 7x64.

 

Thanks for any help.

Hi -

This depends on what Browser that you are using, rather than your OS.

There are settings or add-ons for each browser that you may be using -

Sorry :( ! Failed to mention browser IE9. Don't think Adblock Plus will work with my browser.

 

Thanks

1. Ensure that IE's Pop-Up Blocker setting is enabled or turned on.

 

2. Look up your options here here

 

Good luck

Thanks ReviverSoft but already have set IE pop-up blocker to recommend settings. Looking for an additional program. Read somewhere about a program called "adfender". Looked it up but could not find any official site to download from. Got to be careful nowadays. Have to download Adobe Flashplayer as well and will have to find a secure site for that as well. So frustrating how people can be so malicious.

 

Regards............

I shy away from downloading anything from cNet, which is where you would be downloading from if you use the AdFender site's download link.

I did find AdFender at Softpedia, and downloaded the file from Softpedia's "Secure Download (US)" link.

Scans with Avast, SAS, and Malwarebytes anti-malware were all clean. Sent it to VirusTotal with these results.

Maybe you read about it in this Bleeping Computer thread: Browse without ads - Tips and Tricks, post #10.

Adobe Flash Player | Overview. Before you start the download make sure you un-check the line "Yes, install Google Chrome - optional", unless you want Chrome.

@ FlannelBack

 

Since I visit BC regularly it is more than likely that AdFender was mentioned in a particular thread. Read some tutorials where using HOST extensions

would block sites. Don't think that is a good idea.

 

Thanks to everyone for your input---it is much appreciated.  Regards.........
