Additional block list for IE 8 InPrivate filtering

Before I blogged about getting rid of unwanted ads using IE 8 InPrivate filtering way back last year (http://johndelizo.wordpress.com/2010/08/24/getting-rid-of-unwanted-ads-using-ie-8-inprivate-filtering/) and it seems working up till I am browsing today I noticed that a huge number of ads that I am seeing – it seems that there are new URLs or links that ads nowadays use.

What you can do is import additional block list for the InPrivate filtering. You can search for some lists in the internet, like this one and for  convenience I have uploaded to my skydrive: https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=5686721b6e7ba618&id=5686721B6E7BA618%213547#cid=5686721B6E7BA618&id=5686721B6E7BA618%21487

Download the file and save to your desktop.

Now to import this, just go to the status bar of IE, find the InPrivate icon, click and choose settings.

On the manage Add-ons window, while displaying inPrivate Filtering, click the import button.

Choose the file that you downloaded earlier

A prompt will tell you that this is already imported.

After clicking OK, InPrivate data would refresh and load

So there you have it, more ads and sites blocked :)

There you have it, more filters for IE. Happy browsing!
