    To Fix This Problem:

    Install a personal firewall program that blocks the transmission of personal information

    LnS does not handle these type of things directly. You will need to use a proxy type program to filter those things.

    A couple you could look at:
    Proxomitron
    Adsubtract

    Hi guys!

    As an addition to what CrazyM said, there is an updated version of Proxomitron for German users (more rules):

    You can even use this version if you aren't German speaking. The rules are still in English!

    Best regards!
