I think I need an Ad Blocker

Monday, October 13, 2014

Did you know Vanity Fair napkins are cloth-like? emoticon

While I'm not getting ads for Depends anymore (thank goodness), now I'm getting them for hot flashes emoticon I'm not even 40 yet!!

Along with nacho cheese-blasted taco shells, Popeye's chicken, Ghirardelli chocolates, The Vivo Fit, The FitBit, The Spark Motivator (that one I understand). A Mexican restaurant I've never been to here in town (The spark gods know... emoticon ), children's diapers (the Spark gods better not know something I don't), etc, etc...

So help a girl out and point her in the right direction of a reliable ad blocker. I'm getting three ads loading at one time, and it keeps freezing up pages. I know all of you would just be torn up inside if I couldn't post anymore emoticon

eta: You guys are awesome! Apparently, my google tool bar, which I have, for IE, has blocked 159 pop-ups. I guess I can't do anything about ads embedded on pages? Like the ones here on Spark on the side? If they would just NOT load all at the same time. emoticon

    Damn I am no help. I don't even know if I am getting ads!

    Damn ... I hate being no help ... and I hate not being rambly and making your post have comments that have to wrap around, making things I say seem even more long-winded!

    *kicks the stoopid ads*

    Which browser do you use? I use Firefox and get no pop-ups at all. emoticon

    Thank God you got some help here b/c I was going to say "I have no idea". Because truly, I have no idea. Technology & I don't always get a long. My husband sent me an email earlier with 6 different links to houses in New Mexico. I replied, Just b/c I have a friend and a cousin living there, does not mean I want to move there! He's crazy - so eager to get away from PA which I love. Ridiculous!!!

    Okay Chickie,

    If you are using Internet Explorer.....

    I use the pop up blocker on the Google Tool Bar

    Tiz free and effective, however it is only available for internet explorer so if your using a different BROWSER like Safari, Netscape, Firefox, Etc then I'll have to find you a different one.

    One other thing - What OS are you using to access SP?

    I'll send you a Spark mail, Sparky. Those nacho taco shells and a couple of other fast food ones were totally setting me up with some mean cravings, so I HAD to do something. emoticon

    ETA - Give me a mo, though. I have some stuff that has to get done RIGHT NOW.

    I use Chrome and I use a plugin called "AdBlock" Works great. Makes this site 1000x better.

    They're getting more clever and brazen with the ads. The worst ones are the ones that just sit in front of something I want to read and I can't find the X button to close them. Grrr. If anyone finds a great ad blocker, I hope they share!

    I'm sorry I am not much help either. I am looking at the usual ads that load with the page. (intuit and L.L. Bean What a dweeb I must be) I think my browser firefox blocks the pop-up ads but I am not sure.
