OK this is wierd.

After becoming an avid hater of the ruddy great advertising banners that started appearing alongside the threads here on Pprune, I downloaded and am using Adblock. So far so ................Aargh!
I have now started getting Porn site / Viagra and willy-stretching banner ads in place of the just very annoying Pprune allowed ads.:yuk: Being a bloke I try to do only one thing at a time so keep the aviation sites away from the porno ads sites, it' just too distracting:hmm:

Any one got the same ad banner problem? If so how did you get rid of it?

There is, after all, a place for everything:=

Nothing like that, if you discount James Bonds underpants.

Might be something to do with your, or another user's, browsing habits?:*

Does Adblock work on a Mac ? :) I just get the silly flashing red crap and the Bond babe. It's like trying to read the newspaper while some babe takes your picture repeatedly with a flash camera. Good thing there's nothing important to read here. :E

But they're in good company. All the newspapers do it too, now. I guess they don't have anything important to say.

I actually had a helicopter "fly" across the page I was reading the other day. It was an ad for Boeing.

Whoops, sorry. Didn't mean to let on for the folks hear...I meant here. Blast ! Now they'll put sound on those cursed ads !

Sounds like a drive-by download. You need to scan your system for unexpected BHOs in your browser.

Since I bought and installed this, Ad Blocker Software - Ad Muncher (http://www.admuncher.com/)
I've had exactly zero adverts on web pages. It even removed the ads preceeding video clips on news sites such as cnn.com

Works great and is not expensive.

You have a Virus (from visiting dodgy sites :}) do a search for ad-aware, hijack this and follow instructions......

[email protected] was specifically set up for the clergy and any of you visiting should be ashamed, shamed I say. The Pontiff does not approve but realises things have moved on. Rubbernun is a joint venture with Italian state television. And Alitalia.

This venerable now basiclly useless anti virus program Norton 2005 has one redeeming feature. It blocks ads, slows the machine down and generaly just gets in the way.

Using my other kit I don't get the "Artistic Popups" but Yes those blasted right hand side Ads are a major distraction. PS the Guardian web page is inflicted in a similar way. Don't use Noadaware - I think firefox as a browser might help.

The type of ads bannered on your machine are a direct result of the sites visited, The IPs build up a demographic of your pornographic, and you get the adverts that you deserve.

I must get rid of that "Blue Nun" ad it gives the impression i'm into Catholic Porn

I think you'll find that Blue Nun is an Autoasphyxiation site...

I'll second that, using FF 3.03 with AdBlock Plus (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1865) installed and I've got zero ads on this page.

Is there a blanket 'provider' for (for example) ads on this site?

What are these "ads" you speak of??? :) As they say above - your answer is Firefox & Adblock. Works fine for me...

Digging through my memory for this one but IIRC the first time you run it it will ask you whether you want to add a subscription. The first one on the list is 'Easylist' I think, I just chose that one and somehow it does the trick. While it is called a subscription you don't have to pay anything, the add-on just pulls filters off this list and uses them.

If you've already installed adblock plus but bypassed this step:
- click on the adblock plus logo to open preferences.
- go to 'Filters' menu and select 'Add Filter Subscription'
- click on 'view all subscriptions'
- For the filter that you want to subscribe to, click on the link behind 'Subscribe'
- The dialog box should be filled with the name and address now, make sure the two boxes at the bottom are ticked and select 'OK'.
- There may be a second dialog box still on your screen covering your adblock preferences, click cancel to get rid of that one.
- Close preferences by clicking 'OK' and you're done (before doing that you can check whether the filters are installed by scrolling through the list in the preferences window). By doing this you might be able to find out the URL of the offending provider.

Edit: I just re-read your question, if there are still ads on a page then you may need to add a custom filter to Adblock to cover these ads. The filter is always based on a URL with a wildcard injected somewhere. Click on 'Add Filter' in preferences to do this. Otherwise right click on the offending ad and select 'Adblock image...'. Preferences will open and you can then edit the suggested filter by adding wildcards.
