    You have to be logged in as Administrator before you can chage any setting. ;)

    I already did that, I logged in administrator account and turned on the Ad Blocking, but in the limited account it is still "off".

    How do you have accounts set up in NIS?
    Have you checked both global and user settings?

    It is not NIS. I use NAV + NPF, it does not have accounts setting.
    I think I don't need NPF Ad Blocking function. Now I find the puzzle is about Program Component Monitoring. When I turn it on, I find so many pop-up tell me that the svchost.exe should launch hundred dlls. I think it is not a good idea to close it.

    Do you have both Global and User settings which work differently. You logs will show if the add blocking is working in your limited account, as noted changes can only be made when logged in as Admin.

    While the prompts may slow down a little after first being enabled, they will continue and it is annoying. Your choice whether you want to keep using Component Monitoring, or disable it. The Program Launch Control is better behaved. These observations based on NIS/NPF 2003. I have not used any version beyond that.
