Hello all.

My Mums work colleague has a computer at home and she wants an Ad blocker/remover for her computer cause she gets really annoyed by them apparently.

I'm looking for a great Ad-Remover that should be simple to Install but yet effective with minimal configuration.

The program must also be freeware with no rubbish spyware in it.

I personally use Mozilla to block pop-ups and Outpost firewall gets rid of the web page ad's for me. I just need a really good and easy to use program for my mums work colleague. Any ideas?

I used to use webwasher and that was really good but it aint free now :(.

I'm not asking for plugins and spyware removal lol. I'm looking for an app that removes webpage ad's and popups. When I meant spyware I was saying that the ad program must not have any adverts it self lol if it's freeware.

I dont know about removing web page adds but for the pop ups FreeSurfer works great and has a little foot print on the system. I have not seen a pop up in forever thanks to it and it is a no brainer to install and set up. Just do a google search for it. And yes it is free!!

That's insane.

I don't use it anymore, but I think a program called adshield should work for you. In conjuction with a modified hosts file.

That is down right nuts dude. When was the last time they cleaned there pc out ?? If I saw that I would do a reformat stat. I can just imagine what else is in there lol

The four main progs to use are:
  • Ad-Aware
  • Hyjackthis
  • Spybot Search and Distroy
  • Pest patrol
You run those on a "frenquent" basis you should be fine. As far as blocking adds there are a lot of firewalls that do that. You could also use browsers like MyIe, Advant, and Mozilla to block them also.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
