My default browser is Chrome but I use IE occasionally as a back-up.  I am trying to add Adblock Plus to the latter but this has a different name ("Easy ..") within the IE Gallery.  If I try to add this as an extension the message comes up that I need to have the latest version of IE = 11 for this.  I believe that I already have IE 11 but to be compliant I click on Download IE 11 (excluding Bing and MSN). It then says that it cannot complete the setup operation because IE11 is already installed.  I have been round this loop several times and am getting giddy.  Is there an escape?

Thanks, this looks promising and I will investigate ASAP.  But if this is the secret why does it not display as an option within the IE Gallery like the extensions that I can download in Chrome?  In the latter I use Collusion and Ghostery also for good measure but these were nowhere to be seen in IE. I "searched" for all 3.  I must be missing a trick.

Adblock Plus seems to have got itself installed into IE thanks.  Can I do the same trick for Ghostery and/or Collusion or anything else?

For Ghostery:

I don't think Collusion is available for IE.

Logged in as usual to Chrome: Delay followed by an alert from Avast advising removal of the Ghostery plug-in due a a bad reputation among Avast users.  This must refer to the download for IE since I've had Ghostery on Chrome for quite some time.  I followed Avast's advice and it looks like Ghostery has disappeared from IE but remains on Chrome. Strange

I think you're pretty well covered with Adblock Plus anyway.

 

Get yourself more filters HERE, especially for malware domains.

Thanks, you're spoilt for choice really and they say something about not having too many filters.  The attraction with Collusion is the graphical way it shows all the folk who are tracking you directly and indirectly!

The only filters I don't have, are the ones from other countries and languages. I even do not allow "non-intrusive" ads. They are all nuked, and so far, no problem. :)
