Can Ad-aware block URLs? If so, how is it done?
How can I get a list of blocked URLs?

Thanks!! :thumbsup:

AdAware in itself can't block bad websites. The program Spyware Blaster can though. Good luck!

Thanks Jesse for replying!
OK, AdAware can't block bad websites automatically? Can one manually setup a list of bad URLs within AdAware?

Thanks!!
