Do any of you have experience with this freeware? It can't be verified by Microsoft Security Essentials, so that makes me a bit nervous. But the channel on YouTube posts this, and other links, to remove the annoying LOUD interruptions to his four hour long music compilation, and I would really like to enjoy the whole thing without LOUD interruptions from the stupid, intrusive ads that YouTube puts in….

I use Adblock Plus, but not sure if it's the same one – the site for the one I use is:
Entirely happy with it – its default setting is to allow basic banner adverts, but nuke anything deemed excessively intrusive – pop-ups, Flash adverts, ads with sound, things like that. And yes, it makes watching a playlist on Youtube a pleasant experience again…. :-)

I have been using Ad bloc for years and highly recommend it Being free makes it extremely attractive as well
I used the site Dom provided above and it is recommended that if you download Ad bloc use an official site and not another one that may have malware
Norton and Mcafee anti virus programs have had no problems with Adbloc as well as the various malware screens I have used There is also no effect on computer speeds or other functions You can easily turn Adbloc on and off or allow individual pages to show ads
A Dom has already pointed out it makes watching videos on You tube or on Websites a pleasure You don't have to sit through a series of ads to watch a 30 second video They start right up when clicked

Adblock Plus. I can vouch for it, too. Been using it for years.

Thanks gents. Even though the official Adblock download doesn't pass the "scan" either, I decided to chance it on the basis of your experience. So far, so good!…

Microsoft won't like Adbloc because it hampers directed ads that a lot of Microsoft clients use

Yes, Adblock Plus is great, been using for years.

I have used Adbock Plus for a year or so. Works wonderfully. You know something good is working when I get messages in the ad space to turn Ad Block off.
I guess advertisers don't like it because it is so effective.

Used to use Adblock Plus but switched 12 months ago to uBlock as it uses less browser resources and uses the same database.

How can I allow TMP? The banner ads suddenly stopped showing. The banner ad on the main page still shows up. But when I go into the forums a black rectangle appears at the top for a fraction of a second, then disappears….

Depends on your browser – on mine (Firefox) there's a little red and white "ABP" icon on the menu bar at the top right of the page. When you've got TMP on screen, click on the ABP button, and then select: "Disable on theminiaturespage.com" and it'll allow all ads to run on TMP.

I've enabled Adblock Plus just now, and Bill's banner ads are staying visible. Stoopid software. Btw, it seems that I.E. does not have a "disable for this site" function. It's either all or nothing….
|Great War Ace ||27 Jul 2015 9:09 a.m. PST|
How CLUNKY! I see the TMP ads at the top have vanished again this morning. So I "disable" Adblock Plus" and it makes no difference, the ads still wink out, even with a page refresh. In order for "disable" to take effect, I have to reboot? Stoopid!"
Well, not quite that bad: just go out and come back in, reopen I.E., in other words. That takes care of the "disable" and restores Bill's adverts.
But according to Adblock Plus's own description, TMP ads are not intrusive, ergo ought to display anyway. They should not get blocked at all. Some people's kids, and software designers….
