Getting rid of unwanted ads using IE 8 InPrivate filtering

Hello, I have been busy and tonight I just wanted to read some development in the news but I got really annoyed of the ads loading in my browser. This always happens to me when I browse a site and an ad will pop or will clutter my screen! If you are like me that does want to filter your browsing experience to some parts of the web page, you can use the IE8 InPrivate filtering. Sorry, not really a fan nor ever used online ads. This is just me tho.

This is a snip of my browser me just goin thru our local tv news channel site: Look, I have this ad.

I will try to block this google ad by goin to the lower right corner of the browser window and clicking the history icon with a lock in it besides the zoom. I click it and choose settings like so:

Then this window will appear:

I choose the content to block or allow and chosed some and blocked them by clicking them on the list then while highlighted, I clicked the [block] button.

So I blocked them all  


Then I clicked the [OK] Button. Tried to refresh the page just to see if there are anymore ads there. NONE! So everytime I visit this site, no more ads!

There, back to my evening browsing 😛 Cheers!
