How To Video: Configure Internet Explorer 9's Tracking Protection

1:40 /

Internet Explorer 9 has got a customizable list for blocking those ads. Seth Rosenblatt takes a First Look.

-I hate tracking at-- Hi I'm Seth Rosenblatt for CNET, and I really do load those ads that fool you around. You search for motorcycle gloves or bell bonds just once and boom, that's all you'll ever see until a rave seizure claims your computer. Fortunately, IE9 has got a customise of the list for blocking those ads, and today I'll show how to customise it. Go to the safety menu under options and click tracking protection. Click your personalize list, then hit enable below. Next to the enable button is settings. Hit that to customize your list. The default is set to automatically block, although you can choose a more relaxed option to its right. At the button of the window is a counter that determines how many times an ad can appear before the list access it. The default is 10. I have set mine to 3. Note that you have to do some Web browsing before the list powers will kick in. Now, you're not just limited to your personal list, go back to the main tracking list window to get a link that will open microsoft site for more list, which get added to the browser just like any other add on. Some interest of a sane and calm experience. I strongly recommend enabling tracking protection in IE9 and be sure to check out our other IE9 how to videos. For CNET, I'm Seth Rosenblatt.
