Ad Extinguisher is a FREE 118 kilobyte proxy program that blocks ads and some web bugs on websites and replaces them with a transparent image the same size as the ad. It works on Windows 95/98/NT4/ME/2000/XP with the web browsers Netscape 3, 4.x, 6, Internet Explorer 3, 4, 5, 5.5, 6 and others eg: Opera. This makes surfing the net faster and stops annoying flashing ads.

Adextinguisher is easy to install, and automatically updates the list of ads to be blocked blocking list via the Internet so the user does not have to maintain it or care about keeping it up to date. Changing proxy settings simply reroutes web browser requests for websites eg: through Adextinguisher which gets the website without ads and sends it to the web browser. It is completely safe and is easy to remove.
