Windows 7: Hulu Ad Blocker

Hulu Ad Blocker

In a recent change of the Hulu web player, it was supposed to contain a change to regulate ad volume, but in reality all that it does is boost the volume from what had been an annoyance, to an ear blasting wall shaking sonic wave.

In the past, my firewall blocked some ads, but for some reason, that no longer seems true. I read a post elsewhere that a person had used an ad blocker, but he didn't say which or where it could be found.

I need to find something to control this problem, or I shall have to discontinue watching Hulu. Obviously, I want to continue, because they have some very good programming. Would anyone know of a good solution to the problem?

May I point you towards forum rule number 23:

No discussion of ad blocking software - Websites cost money to run and blocking ads is no more than theft of service, if you dont like a sites ads then dont use the site.
Sorry to kill the thread.

Any HULU Plus Subscribers out there?
I'm just wondering if $7.99 is worth the upgrade to HULU Plus. It seems to me that if they're going to charge a fee they can get rid of the commercials. Does anyone recommend any other services or is HULU Plus a good upgrade?

As I suspected, since Hulu started their Hulu Plus subscription service, the available programming on regular Hulu, of interest to me, has dwindled considerably. Even their 1 week trial requires giving them a credit card #, which gives them the right to make continous debits each month on the...

Pop Up/Under Blocker
Is there a "real" pop up/pop under blocker? Many sites have gotten around the pop up blockers and still have ads that open when you click on a link in a site. The pop up blocker, for instance in I.E.8, does nothing with these types.
