I hate Flash ads; they take up precious screen space and worse it hogs up bandwidth. Thankfully, there are a number of ways to disable them. For Internet Explorer 6.0, I recommend using Javacool Software’s SpywareBlaster, a freeware. Follow these steps to disable Flash ads using SpywareBlaster.
- Launch SpywareBlaster.
- Go to Tools > Flash Killer.
- Check Disable and Block Flash in Internet Explorer. Viola!
Reify’s Turnabout offers another way to disable Flash ad in IE. Turnabout is freeware and is amazingly easy to use. Turnabout has many other features besides just blocking Flash ads so there is that much more incentive to give it a try. To disable Flash ad using Turnabout follow these simple steps.
- Start Internet Explorer
- Click on the Reify icon which appears on the menu bar.
- Go to Options and check Hide Flash objects until I click them. Viola!
