Hey Folks! How is everyone? The reason why im writing, is because i need to know how to totally prevent dirty ads and ads in general from appearing on the websites i visit. For example, i was on the CBS News website the other night, watching some news with my friends and a ad with a picture of a girl with her bikini top appears on the right side of the page. This is very annoying and innapropiate, so how do i prevent ads like this and ads in general from appearing on the websites i visit. Please Help!!! Thanks :D

What Internet Browser do you use? If you use FireFox, Ad-Block may do the trick.

Yeah I hate these ads too. It is really sad at the "appropriateness" level of advertising and the media in general these days.

You will need to install Firefox if it isn't already.

I use Internet Explorer, but i can install Firefox if that will fix the problem. What do you recommend?

It's really all opinion, but I find most people on this forum seem to recommend Firefox... I have a feeling there's an Internet Explorer tool out there somewhere for blocking ads though. I could Google search it and recommend you one, but since I haven't tried any of them I don't think that would be appropriate.

I will say that Firefox's add-on system (and the sheer number of add-ons available) allows for a lot of extra uses and functionality. I definitely recommend you test it out.
