Mandy asks…

Is there any way to Completely block Adware altogether?

I just got 3 virus/malware/adware removal programs and was astonished to find 700 adware things locked away…. I re ran the thing, found 12, any way to just block it altogether? A browser maybe? Because I have Firefox, have settings right I believe, any protection programs that does adware protection like Norton and Malwarebytes does virus and malware protection?

softwareguru answers:

The following tips help, but methods (“vectors”) are dynamic, and users must stay abreast of daily threats.
FIREFOX: Tools> Options> Privacy> top drop menu set to “Firefox will use custom settings…”> Check ‘Accept Cookies from sites’
►Un-Check ‘Accept 3rd Party cookies’.

A good collection of effective add-on’s (Official Mozilla) is here:
AdBlock Plus (with ‘subscription’ added) & “Better Privacy” also help defray rubbish.
►► At minimum, get the #1 item for malware prevention: “NoScript”, which constrains automagically fetching & deployment of potentially tainted assets.
