The best ad blockers?

by zammer8 / May 22, 2010 9:08 AM PDT

Super AdBlocker has too many problems to continue usings it. It blocks videos, takes too long to open, doesn't stop ads in links, and other things. Support hasn't been that good. I'd like suggestions from those running other ad blockers. (I don't mind paying, but have no problems using free programs, either.)

I uss Chrome, Internet Explorer 8, MSN Explorer. The SAB problem with videos exists on all of them. Also, it seems that when you're on a primary site, say BBC, and there is a link in it to another source, the ad blocker doesn't work on that one after you've gone to it.
