Simple tip to Block all the ads

Your Ad Here

If you want to remove ads which waste lot of your time and bandwidth from webpages, then here is a technique for you.I hope it will help you a lot.
Whenever you go to a webpage the ads it generates are from some specific sites on the internet.Now the site has been given a domain name like .If somehow you could make your computer to go to some other site instead of googlesyndication,then you could escape google ads.Similar is the case with others. The most common way to do this is by using a file called "hosts file". The hosts file contains a list of domain names and their corresponding IP addresses, which our windows OS looks at every time we go to a site. If it finds entry for the domain name, it sets the IP address for that domain name to be whatever is in the hosts file. is a special IP address which always means that the computer itself. Any time a machine sends a request to, it is talking to itself. This is very useful in our present case, because all we have to do is specify the IP address of any ad server to be And for that, we have to edit the hosts file.

So for doing it first find out your "Hosts file".See your hosts file according to here.

*Windows 98/Me:C:\Windows/hosts
* Windows NT: C:\WinNT\hosts
* Windows NT/2000/XP Pro: C:\WinNT\system32\drivers\etc\
* Windows XP Home,Vista: C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc
* FreeBSD / Linux / Mac OS X / Unixish operating systems: /etc/hosts

The format of the hosts file is very simple - IP address, whitespace, then a list of hostnames .
The following file contains all the mappings required.All you have to do is this:

Find your hosts file from above and add the contents of this text file in a new line in the same pattern.

That's all you have to do and your comp is rid of all those nasty ads.If you want any ads just remove the line corresponding to it.I prefer you remove google's entry i.e., because I use google ads to sponsor myself and also google ads are very simple that they don't waste your bandwidth.But anyway it's your wish in the end :)
