    Currently trialling SuperAdBlocker, which has resident SuperAntispyware protection engine included. I have a week to decide whether or not to buy SAB.

    So far it's performing flawlessly with these other resident protection programs:
    - Comodo V3 Firewall with Defense+ HIPS activated.
    - Comodo BOClean 4.25
    - NOD32 v2.7

    My only criticism is that SuperAdBlocker processes use about 43K of system memory.

    It's performing very well at blocking ads, and website-loading speed is noticeably faster due to ad-blocking.

    Any suggestions for alternate ad-blockers?

    Thanks for your help!

    My suggestions are Ad Muncher (any browser) or AdBlock Plus w/ the three filters on this page (Firefox).

    @Birdman - from my experience yes it is normal. I have not used Ad Muncher for a while though.

    For me SuperAdBlocker has been in use for many years- its faultless and seems to be a more polished product.

    Yes,the memory usage is 43k compared to Ad Muncher of 10k for me -but how important is this-surely these days most people have between 1-2gb of memory

    SAB also incorporates anti-spyware protection and scanner of reasonable quality.

    If you want a freebie and are running IE-install the front end for the Maxthon

    browser:thumb: :thumb: -It has an adblocker ..

    For Internet Explorer-install the plugin IE plus,or IE7 PRO,both with ad-blockers.

    With your other software it may be just as well to try admuncher and use the free SAS scanner. The only other thing I could mention that has not yet been named is either something like MVPS-
    http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm

    or if you want something simple for IE try the quero toolbar-

    http://www.quero.at/

    But you'll probably want to hide it in IE as it is not exactly eye candy. But it is pretty effective at blocking ads. I used it for a hort while and had everything in it disabled except for the ad filter as it blocked ads better than IE7pro.

    Hi,

    It appears to me, admuncher is bit more effective, although SuperAdBlocker is not a bad choice, but .....

    Admuncher will block image loading on my web tv channel.

    Yes, with the exception of FilterSet G - don't use it.

    Hi all,

    Ad Muncher without a doubt. You can filter ads, scripts, web bugs and many more in any apps you want not only browsers

    MaB69-

    Thought there was a conflict between OA2 and Ad Muncher, just wondering because of the programs you have listed in your signature.

    Hi CJ,

    Switched to OA free until the conflict will be fixed. In AM 4.72, I hope.
