Fresh Install - How do i stop the ads on web sites

  Thomo1 23:40 05 Dec 2005

Just freshly installed my copy of windows and have NIS 2005. Have done this 3 times before with NIS and a fresh install but now cant for the life of me remember how to stop the flashing ads on web sites from showing.

Blocking pop-ups in Internet Options is checked.

Anybody with NIS or has a knowledge of NIS05 know how to stop these highly annoying ads.

They are not pop-ups just flashing ads!

Have stopped them for the last year or so but how - memory loss.

I can't understand why anyone would knowingly install the resource hog NIS, but to stop the ads you could use you could download a new Hosts file, Thomo1, and if you're using Internet Explorer, IE-Spyad as well. click here

MAJ - i use NIS becuz i have never had any problems from it andit keeps my system safe. The day it starts to let me down i will brush it aside and go to something else.
