Opt Outs

These links take you directly to the "opt out" feature of the ad server listed. Clicking these links stop the advertising from that ad server. If you enjoy seeing pop-up ads, please do not use this service. As we find more links we will place them here. If you find something that belongs here please let us know. Add your name to the mailing list to be notified of new entries.

NEW! Download a hosts file to kill even more ads. It's free and pretty easy. You can get it from mvps.org as a ZIP archive or in plain text. Information on using the hosts file, as well as the latest hosts file updates, can be found here.

How does this work? More info...

24/7 Real Media
Popups and banners, seen at Yahoo! and others.

Another ad server. Handles a lot of different companies, including Avenue A | Razorfish, DRIVE and Atlas.

Be Free Inc

Delivers ads, pops, rich media. Used by Yahoo!

Comet Cursors
Not a popup but can be annoying and/or cause trouble with your computer. Anyhow, here's a way to stop them.

The folks behind Columbia House. Opts out of clicktracking and information sharing.

One of the larger adservers. Serves Gambling and Casino ads. Often seen on Lycos, Excite, Yahoo and others. Opting out of doubleclick will also disable many in-line banners.

Serves "click to win" type ads. Opting out of this one seems to kill a lot of in-line banner ads too. Might fail on the first try [because they do not want people linking to it directly]. If it does, you'll be given an alternative link at the bottom of the page they direct you to.
