Care to share?

Going to give Internet Explorer a new trial as I didn't really bother with it before.

I currently have all the ones from HERE, plus the two from Fanboy's ad block. Do you think I can get rid of the others and just have Fanboys?

Thanks :D

You shouldn't use all the lists from Microsoft's site because one of them is provided by an advertising-related company and provides exceptions for all the major trackers, thus invalidating all the other lists. I think the one to avoid is the TRUSTe list but you should double check before relying on my word. OK, I just found the article I was thinking about and the TRUSTe list is the one to avoid:

Easy List

Easy Privacy

Fanboy's List

Same lists that AdBlock on Firefox uses.

I use EasyPrivacy+EasyList combo in Firefox. Combining lists from different parties can cause conflicts and break websites, so it's probably best just to stick to one.

Hosts file?

Its a bit like the adblock adon for firefox. Except its built into near every OS, and is system wide.

Pretty good one to get you started .. http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.htm
