I was quickly reminded of one such important setting when I first viewed this forum... ads everywhere!!! :?

:shock: Yikes, you gotta be kidding me I thought! :shock:

That of course reminded me of that sweet little file we all have: :idea:


So here I am again to remind you all that you need NOT tolerate the Google ads and many others plaguing the Internet these days.

Here's how to eliminate the ads once and for all:

Simply copy all the mambo jumbo below this message and paste it to the end of your hosts file (the one I highlight above) and save it in Notepad. Then exit and re-enter your browser. Here it is and write back if you had a problem especially in Windows 7 :wink: localhost

ok :D

I use adblock on Maxthon 4, if you search extensions it comes up. It says its for chrome but works on fine with Maxthon 4, this is for the mac version though, I'm not sure if it's any different on PC.
