Ad Blocker for Internet Explorer

Plagued with annoying ads, yesterday I discovered Adblock plus. I banged it on Firefox and Chrome and it works like a dream....most impressive, However, despite reading that they're working on it, seems like IE won't accept it. Can anyone recommend another blocker?

I couldn't find an adblocker for IE that was any good BUT what I did do was to go to Manage Add-ons in IE and select Tracking Protection then I installed the following lists:- Fanboy and Easylist.

Works a treat!

AFAIK they update automatically. I use Easy list and it is showing updated today.

I use it on my W/7 computer but I could find no way of updating it in I/E10.

You can update it ok in Firefox so maybe I am doing something wrong on I/E.

I think they update automatically and I certainly have found no drawbacks after about a year.
