How to remove potentially dangerous website advertisements. Following the directions in this video will disable all Google ads that use scripting, javascript, or whatever setting you have in the "Restriced sites" in Internet Explorer. For additional blocking, you must have IE 8 or later, as it utilizes the "InPrivate Filtering" feature - a hidden, but very, very valuable tool. It's dubbed as preventing third-party providers from tracking your information, which is basically what advertisers do... too bad not too many people know about this hidden gem.

Why would you want to do this? Well, not only is the annoyance removed, but the risk of malicious advertisements and obtrusive advertisements are most certainly blocked. This includes Flash-based ads which can also use sound and announce something stupid like "Congratulations! You won..."

This includes using a .reg file to add registry keys to the registry. It adds advertisement URL's to the restricted list in Internet Explorer. If you don't believe me, save the file and open it with Notepad. From there, you'll see all the exact entries that will be created in the registry. Nothing deadly.
