    Website Videos

    Sometimes when I go to a site I use often and video advertisement starts to play automaticly...

    What's causing this and anyway to prevent it?

    This is the site...http://www.dailyfreeman.com/

    You need to use AdBlock Plus on a non-IE browser:

    Are there any add-ons for IE9 which block Flash? The best design is to create a placeholder you can click to run the Flash if you like.

    If you are using I.E. 9 you can block Flash on websites: Click on "Safety" then check "ActiveX Filtering". What happens on my laptop is that now ALL Flash is blocked. you will now notice a blue circle on the address bar. You can click on that and unblock the ActiveX for that site, and it will remain unblocked. I have also turned on Tracking Protection as well. Again under "Safety"
    Thanks John
