I live in Mexico, so it doesn't surprise me at all to have some ads that originate here. They can appear on almost any major site I visit. No big deal.
Until now. Some advertisers put extremely intrusive ads on my browser pages, blinking like mad, and - worst of all, playing a short tune every few seconds.
It's getting very bad. I'm sure they find me through my IP address, so I'd like to find a small app that will hide it online. My ZoneAlarm claims to hide my PC from hackers, but it doesn't hide the IP address at all. I don't know what the difference is. But I do know ZA isn't preventing those ads.
I tried to download an app from Download.com, but they were terrible.
Can you refer me to a free app that will help?

I use Ad Block. It should be available for all browsers.
