Free Ad Blocker

I'm getting tired of seeing all the pop-ups - does anyone know of a totally free programme that will block them? I keep searching but only seem to find (once I've downloaded and installed) ones that offer a "free trial." Any help appreciated before my eyes suffer any more from the constant flashing!

Can you remind me how you do it for Internet Explorer.

I did copy the easy list to I/E a while back and have forgotten how to do it. I would like to check for updates for it.

If you are using IE8 or below you can get the free IE7pro add on.

This is what I mean but scroll back for an earlier download as the latest download is poor.

If using it.Make sure ad blocker is ticked and mini download manager is unticked.

It is free and quite good but not great on IE9.

Oops http://www.ie7pro.com/ that is the one to forget I will try and get an older version for you.

This is an earlier version and works Ok. Just make sure it does not try and download the latest version .

Once you tick ad blocker you have to close I/E and then on again for it to start working.

buteman, sorry I think I am wrong regarding IE. I saw a notice but I now think it must have been for Ad Block
