    Cheater87, I have taken the time to go through Newgrounds.com and write this filter to remove all the ads that I saw:

    Code:
    [Patterns]
    Name = "NewGrounds Cleaner [Kye-U]"
    Active = TRUE
    URL = "([^/]++.|)newgrounds.com/"
    Limit = 4096
    Match = "$NEST(<script,*(a.as-us.falkag.net|iframe_rightmedia_box|server.cpmstar.com|Ads_cnturl|adbrite.com|interclick.com|open_player\(\))*,</script>(<br><br>|))"
            "|$NEST(<a,*(phpAdsNew/adclick.php|/ads/|secure2.convio.net|adbrite.com)*,</a>(<br><br>|))"
            "|$NEST(<iframe,*iframe_(gorilla_sky|rightmedia_box).html*,</iframe>)"
            "|<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="143"( align="center"|)> <tr> <td background="/layout04/side_panel_top.gif" height="29"><img src="/layout04/side_head_(ezine|affs).gif"*<td><img src="/layout04/side_panel_bot.gif" width="143" height="20"( border="0"|)></td> </tr> </table>"
            "|$NEST(<!-- START_\w_MINI_ADS -->,*,<!-- END_\w_MINI_ADS -->)"
            "|$NEST(<!----- WEB SPONSOR ------------------->,*,<!---- END WEB SPONSOR ------------------>)"
            "|<tr> <td align="center"> <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="770"> <tr> <td width="15"><img src="/layout04/newhf/banner_left.gif*newhf/banner_right.gif" width="23" height="100"></td> </tr> </table> </td> </tr>"
            "|<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"> <tr> <td colspan="3"><img src="/images/adframe_top*<td colspan="3"><img src="/images/adframe_bottom.gif" width="310" height="5"></td> </tr> </table>"
            "|<table border=0 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 width=130> <tr> <td width=130><img src="/images/ad_frame_sky_top.gif*/images/ad_frame_sky_bottom.gif" width=130 height=5></td> </tr> </table>"
            "|<td width="310"> <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="310"> <tr> <td colspan="3"><img src="/images/adframe_top*<td colspan="3"><img src="/images/adframe_bottom.gif" width="310" height="5"></td> </tr> </table> </td>"
            "|<tr> <td><img src="/layout04/newhf/ad_top.gif" width="770" height="10"></td> </tr> <tr> <td align="center"> <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="770"> <tr> <td width="13" background="/layout04/newhf/ad_left.gif$SET(1=\k)"
    Replace = "\1"
    This is a filter for Proxomitron. To install and setup Proxomitron, visit this guide:

    http://kyeu.hostingzero.com/proxo/resources/setup.php

    To import the filter, follow these steps:

    1. Highlight the entire filter. Then either press CTRL + C or right-click on it and click on "Copy"

    2. Open Proxomitron's main screen. Click on the "Web Page Filters" button.

    3. Click on an existing filter of which you want the new filter to be inserted before. Once it is highlighted, right-click and click on "Import Filters from Clipboard".

    4. Click on "Apply" then "OK".

    5. Save your configuration file.

    I hope you enjoy.

    also the castlecops forum is an excellent resources for everything proxomitron and various filter sets including Kye-U's security pack. I myself use Grypen's filters.

    i visit newgrounds and i dont think ive been hit by spyware. but if ure sure it has spyware try using a few antispyware scanners like spy sweeper and microsoft antispyware. keep at least one in realtime.

    proxomitron can do many things from altering the look of websites to blocking flash, java, ads, cookies etc. if u want a filter set to try, i use grypens filters, u may need to put sites and forum such as Wilders to the bypass list tho.

    Yes, your safe there is no spywere on newgrounds.com, ive been on that site a million times, as long as your useing firefox nothing will happen. :cool:

    and you can download a fileset for adblock here
    that blocks most ads.

    Yup, at least Dr. Web's web scanner says it is.

    You could also use something like Online Armor to remove that kind of stuff from websites.
