Open up your hosts file ( c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts in WinXP ) , and add the line

127.0.0.1 pagead.googlesyndication.com

Save the file and you'll never see an AdSense ad again until you format your PC or remove that line.

I would just like to complete the list. Add the following to HOST file and forget GoogleAds forever :

Code: txt

Cool Host-file tricks .


For those of you who don't understand what's going on, let me clear it : 127.0.0.1 is your own machine's IP (localhost). So, basically when you connect to 127.0.0.1, you are looped back to your own computer !
What you do in the host-file is, you link the URLs (on the right) to the IP 127.0.0.1 (on the left). So, the ads are gone, 'cuz their URLs loop back to your own PC.
