Step 3: Blocking an Ad
To block an Ad, you first need to have an Ad to block. When you find one, you should be able to roll over it and there will be a small tab that pops up labeled Block.
Click the tab and a window will appear showing the details of the Ad. Click Add Filter. After you reload the page, the site will load like the Ad was never there.
