    In the hosts file
    How do remove ads that display through a site?

    The total ad source is:
    http://cache.finn.no/gfx/bannerads/settinnann360_finndenrette.gif

    If i just do :
    cache.finn.no
    it removes All images within the site-not good

    and if i do:
    cache.finn.no/gfx/bannerads
    it doesnt do anything

    what to do?
    to get rid of these ads using hosts trick?

    (i use edexter on the side not that this matters).

    i think the supertrick can only block domains ie. cache.finn.no, which i'm going to guess is where the website stores its images

    if the ads really bug you try out Admuncher

    You can only add top level domain or sub-domain to block in a host file. If it was something like ads.whatever.com you could have added that.

    So I dont think you can block only a directory.

    Try one thing

    cache.finn.no/gfx/bannerads/

    Add that / in the end to see if it changes anything. I doubt that but just try it out.

    I thought so.
    I was trying to block a directory only and sometimes it doesnt work if you dont give "/" in the end. But alas, as thought host file can only block domains or sub-domain.
    As DarthInsinuate said, the other only possibility is using Zonealarm or Admuncher&#33;
