Hi, I'm using Ublock as my pop up blocker and lately more stuff has started getting through. 2questions: do I have to manually set items for Ublock to block as they come in? Second, Is there a better program out there?

Thanks for the help!

Look at Adblock Ultimate combined with Ghostery and Noscript if you use firefox. For Chrome use Ghostery and Adguard Adblocker. In Ghostery enable what you wish under Advanced blocking options. Personally, I check everything.  It is not necessary to create a Ghostery Account.


Noscript requires a bit of learning curve to determine which sites you wish to allow scripts and what script to allow.


In Chrome click Options > Settings > Advanced Settings at the bottom of the page. Under Privacy > Content make sure PopUps are not allowed.
