Then, once Firefox is open, go to Tools->Extensions, then click Get More Extensions.
Download the AdBlocker extension, and restart Firefox.
Now, whenever you go to a site like this one with ads on it, right click on the ad and choose to block it. No more ads! Just like how the internet used to be in good old 1994.
I would highly recommend to anyone to use Firefox rather than Internet Explorer. You'll save yourself from all kinds of virii, popups, ads, spyware, and a generally crappy browser. It also has tabbed browsing. If I could get my company to use it, I wouldn't have to spend so much time fixing everyone's computer.

Well this is pretty neat, wish i'd found this for all the years i spent on windows boxes, i like to use epiphany on my mandrake box tho. I would certainly enjoy having this as the newtwork wide browser at work, as most of the stupid shit that gets on our servers is from stupid little shopping ads and shit from stupid ignernt front desk do nothings who abuse the tools put before them to do their job so i have to spend my time fixing shit they fucked up. We just spent like 2K(that's just for this years service, as i understand, now) for a rather powerful and i find up to this very minute to be a rather trustworthy peice of software that hashes out the child locks on web surfing, it's pretty intricate and covers all the bases i knew could be covered and then some. Like a net nanny on serious 'roids. Shouldn't be neccesary tho, people, grown adults with children mostly, you WOULD think could be trusted to be alone unsupervised so their leaders could go about running the rest of their department.

Software is the most over priced commodity in the business world. You would not believe what we pay for software licenses where I work, not to mention consultant fees for the shitty unintuitive software thats forced on us.
