Add the line
127.0.0.1 ad.doubleclick.net
to the ...\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\HOSTS file.

You may use Notepad to open and edit this file, but be sure that when you save it that it is not saved as HOSTS.txt, but rather as HOSTS (with no filename extension - it's a Unix thing). If it is saved as HOSTS.txt then rename it to HOSTS

Crusty I might try that. I just installed stopzilla, rebooted and he is there just the same. How is he getting through several pop up stoppers?

Somebody hold my hand while I go into the registry, it's scary.

It's a flash video which bypasses html code and the blocker programs which work on it. Those ads are usually crafted, recrafted and rerecrafted to defeat most popup blockers.

The url for the source of the ad (ad.doubleckick.net) is redirected to the local loopback address on your pc by the trick that I mentioned earlier. The flash code is never launched because you've told your pc to look for it locally and it doesn't exist there so nothing happens.

Thanks Crusty. But I got lost. I typed regedit and now I need the path to windows 32 system file. I thought I knew but I don't.

Regedit ??? Bad! Very Bad! Close it immediately and don't save any changes if prompted.

Reread my post where I specified the path to the file (except that your drive letter is omitted - I don't know if your system drive is C or D

Browse to the HOSTS file and open with Notepad as I said earlier, add that line anywhere below the last line that starts with a #, save the HOSTS file, and when you save it make sure that it is saved as HOSTS, not HOSTS.txt


This is what my HOSTS file looks like when I open it with Notepad.

Correct me if I am wrong but...
I thought the whole point of "Supporting Members" was to get rid of those pop-ups.

Wheel Interested. Don't use Explorer. It is really a dinosaur.. Go and down load Firefox and you will have no further problems.. It will even import all your favorites from IE for you... Good luck...

I don't think you are - that looks like it might be a Windows "Rights" related problem.
Are you logged in to Windows as Administrator equivalent?

Right click on the HOSTS file and select Properties and see if the Read Only box is checked, and if so clear it and try to save again.

It's vintage Jason.

I'll take it for a spin. I have held out thus far kind of a pain to have to change solely because of the forum though.
