I was looking for an Ad-Banner blocker for KayEm to use on a game site and came across Ad-Annihilator.

I installed it and ran it. When the trial period ended, I expected to get a message and would have removed it from the system using 'Add/Remove programs'.

No such luck - Once the trial period had ended, I did get a warning message, so off I went to 'Control Panel'' to remove it. Unfortunately not only did I get the Ad-Annihilator message, message, but the sodding thing screwed up the window.

This is what I got whenever I tried to access 'Control Panel' :

It gets worse - The piece of
crashed' every window - 'Control Panel', 'My Computer', you name it, it got screwed.

So I edited the registry - no luck. I was about to reinstall Win 98 when I had an idea. I clicked on 'Control Panel' which crashed, leaving the Add-Annihilator message on the screen. I Then clicked on 'My Computer' (without removing the offending message) and lo and behold, it worked. Just as well otherwise I would have been somewhat pissed off at the whole thing.

If you want an AdBlocker for FireFox, get AdBlock (hehe). Then you can set it to Block whole Directories of images. I dont get those pesky ads at the top of ATS anymore.

But if your looking for an AdBlocker for IE, try AdMuncher, works great for a few friends of mine.

Thanks for that, Dreamland - I just loaded Ad-Muncher (I'm using Nescape for a while until I can work out what's up with my copy of Firefox) and now, instead of the crappy ads I get a little message that says 'Ad removed by the Pixy'
