Windows 7: Almost there- need help

Almost there- need help

I've successfully prevented a free media player called The KMPlayer from loading a live side section (whenever I open a video) which has movie or other annoying media ad offers... by adding a line in System32 > Drivers > etc >hosts file.

127.0.0.1 player.kmpmedia.net

Also, to block a patch update popup that also happens when opening a video: Control Panel > Windows Firewall > Inbound and Outbound block all executables in the player program location.

However, Internet Explorer still opens the page in the attached image whenever I open a video. I think it's the update patch pop-up mentioned above but without the content. It's a "can't display" message.

I tried adding the address line text half-seen in the image attachment to Internet Options > Security Restricted Sites. The line from the address field seen in the image attachment is:

res://ieframe.dll/dnserrordiagoff_webOC.htm -#h**p://player.kmpmedia.net/kmp_plus/platform/view/main (note: http changed with asterisks to prevent a hotlink)

When clicking Add, it shows up as "about page blank" in the Security > Restricted Sites field.

And, it did not work to prevent the "cannot display page" popup from appearing whenever I open a video. I also tried just the "http://player.kmpmedia.net/kmp_plus/platform/view/main" part of the text above from the address field. Didn't work.

How do I prevent that thing from appearing?

I only use KMPlayer because of its very easy Bookmark feature. I need to use it often. Otherwise, I'd use VLC but last time I checked, making a bookmark in VLC was too complicated. I am forced to use KMPlayer, which now gets me pretty angry with all its attempts to sell and load stuff.

What's worse, even though I completely no-thank-you-ed all the Pandora options in Setup... it STILL loaded onto my machine. Again. The third time I think. The person who is responsible for the software has become very aggressive. Boooooo!

I wish someone would show me a simple fast VLC bookmark feature.

I can't help you crack it but I will say this; It probably opens a tunneling port.

Maybe take a look at Saleen Video Manager (WMV, MPEG, FLV...)

It's free.

Bookmarks and Playlists can be stored.

Requires VLC to be installed. It's not bad once you get used to it and set it up to your liking.

You can still open videos in full screen from within the interface.

Hmmmm, I see. We must have used different search criteria - I saw no references (in eight pages) to ad blocking in the results on the link I provided. I didn't dig down to the actual links in the results though.

Thanks for the feedback - you know I was just having a little fun with you - right? The smilies should have been a dead giveaway

edit: Aha! I was answering the question about VLC bookmarks and thought you searched for that as well. I went back and read post# 1, now I understand.
