    Hello. I installed Adblock Plus on Firebox already. However, there are still web banners appearing on the screen. On a website that provides free movie viewing, different ads keep appearing blocking the view of the movie. I also noticed that for the past two weeks, there are more small web banners appearing at the bottom of the video viewing screen. What is the best free tool available to stop these annoying ads from appearing? Thanks.

    adblock+ is customizable. you can also switch the predefined list. It took ma a couple of tried to get the one I like.

    I also use Flashblock which blocks flash. Most adds are flash.

    I also updated my my hosts file to backlist a large number of add sites.
    I use the one at http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.htm

    I hardly get any adds.

    NoScript is also a good option, however I have never used it.
