(Why is there no Software forum here?)
(On XP Pro SP3). I've gotten so fed up with Kaspersky Internet Security that I had to disable it. So I need a replacement for it's banner/ad blocker. That part of it worked great, all you had to do was right click any image, ad or banner on a webpage and "Add to anti-banner". Therefore I'm looking for the best free banner/ad blockers that work just like Kaspersky did with its right click and "Add to anti-banner". Any recommendations please? I do NOT want to install any (SpyWare) "toolbar" that has a banner blocker.
Please, no BS about "just use FireFox" or "just use Chrome", I hate them. I need one for IE.
Also, I'm fully aware of the Hosts file and how it works, but having to find it, change it from "Read only" so I can edit it, open it up in Metapad (or Notepad), then edit it, save it, and having to do all this each time I find a new parasite ad or banner, is entirely out of the question. (Mine already has over 15,000 lines in it ).
Thanks for any program suggestions.
