    I have spoofstick, but does it block ads really? Isnt it just an information tool?
    Otherwise I use adblock for firefox, but I have also noticed that a well filled hosts file does the same job. Atleast it takes care of all the ads in Internet explorer.
    Antispyware = none.

    It's not so much an adblocker, but rather helps with Phishing attacks.

    I don't use any antispy software ... but for ad blocking and privacy I use ...

    Windows = Proxomitron - Privoxy - Tor combo

    Linux = Privoxy & Tor

    Hello,
    Depends on what the machine is used for.
    But for nominal day to day: none / old microsoft anti-spyware beta 1 (giant).
    Ad-blocking by adblock in FF or Proxomitron.
    Mrk
