Annoying mortgage company dancers

by mjfuller / February 14, 2007 10:04 PM PST

Is there a way, or software, that blocks or otherwise zaps only those annoying dancers that are part of many ads? Mortgage companies are the worst offenders! They're not really pop ups, but are part of the Web page called up. I hate to be reading something I want on the page and my eyes are distracted by the stupid dancers. Very annoying!!! I'm running on a Dell desktop with XP Home, Mozilla Firefox, and TrendMicro Internet Security. I also use AdAware, Spybot S&D, and Spyware Blaster. Thanks.

Adblock Plus. It's an addon to Firefox, Mozilla and Seamonkey browsers.
