You continue to troll, long after people have hit you with the clue stick.

I'm not responding to the troll, just the HoopleHead.

You can't even think straight, hooplebrain.

It was you who was trying to pretend I was a troll.

And now you continue to reply showing just how dumb you are and who the real
"hooplehead" is.

You got the correct answer to the question you asked. If that's not the
question you meant to ask, it's your own fault and you need to take
responsibility for it instead of blaming everyone else.

Thnak you.

I can see how it could be interpreted that way. Anyway, you have two
browsers that both don't do what you have come to expect regarding
blocking of content. I suppose it could be misleading you, bringing you
to the conclusion that *one* thing (the OS) would more likely be the
problem than *two* things (both browsers) would be - Occam's Razor
strikes again.

If you can't find enough configurability within the browsers' settings,
use a proxy filter - I used to use "Proxomitron" but I have no idea if
it is still available, but there are sure to be others out there.

Thanks for the reply, but I was in a hurry and distracted and made a dumb
error in substituting win for ie, in the op.

I know blocking banners and popups is AV / IE and that the os is only the
firewall - I just dashed it off mistakenly.

Kaspersky AV has a good banner ad blocker, but it also somewhat frequently
runs the CPU at 100 pct, so I tried Symantec AV, which doesn't hog up the
cpu anywhere near as much (maybe becasue it isn't giving as much
protection?), but Sym AV doesn't have a banner ad blocker, so I was hoping
there might be soemthing built in on ie would help.

I used to use Proxomitron, in fact, it's still installed on my
computer, but disabled. It did work well, but was kind of difficult to
get set up, as I recall. It became redundant a few years ago when I
started using Firefox, so I turned it off and have hardly thought of it
since.

Indeed, Firefox with the AdBlockPlus add-on solves popup and the
problem of ads very nicely.

So, why didn't you just say so instead of childishly insulting the
people who were going out of their way to answer the question you
asked?

Actually, the function of IE is to *allow* banners and pop-ups - but I
didn;t want to irritate him. :o)

As for AV - it's not really an AV function either, but a 'feature
sprawl' insinuation of AV and they probably do it by proxy filtering
too.
