Trade me and Adblocker plus

geek_footplate1, Feb 6, 7:35 pm
I have opened TM three times on my rebuilt laptop and have been inundated with pop- up adverts. Thanks to postings in this forum. I have used Adblocker and it has worked well. Now have to find a way of opening a clean version of Trademe on the laptop. But others may find this note of interest.

Lesson learn't. I always install Adblock plus when doing a rebuild before copying over Bookmarks or Favourites to my browsers and before using the browser for anything other than downloads to get the system runniing.

probably should be noted that for excessive and intrusive adverts on trademe (or any other site), it is more likely to be a malware infection which Adblock Plus and the like are NOT intended or likely to fix.

For that you should start with

. err. yeah. You'd install adblock on the laptop browser too.

Thank you. Have just installed it.

Cheers

For clarity, you should install it, run it, CLEAN it, then delete it. It is a one off, standalone tool.
