Manufacturer’s Description

Are you sick of slow-loading and animated banner ads? AdFree is a program that removes banner ads from Web sites. AdFree filters your Web connections as you surf and blocks ads you don't want. Unlike other ad-blockers that use proxies, AdFree looks in your Windows HOSTS file for a Web server's IP address. When a page calls an ad, AdFree edits the HOSTS file and substitutes a dummy file for the banner ad. You selectively choose which banners you don't want to view in the future by right clicking it and specifying the server you want to block. AdFree also lets you block out entire sites from being visible to your browser.
