    Simple AdBlock becoming a nuisance

    All of a sudden yesterday I am getting Spam from Simple AdBlock stating that Simple AdBlock has reached it's blocking limit of 200 ads. Upgrade to turn off the limit. I have used Simple AdBlock for quite some time and this anoyance just started, Any suggestions.

    I did try this. I have disabled the Simple AdBlock add on. I do not appreciate a "free" add on that suddenly starts asking you to buy a diff. version.

    The Update for Simple AdBlock must have loaded the paid version, which I will not pay for. Thanks for the link.

    Hi Ted, I removed as stated above. Here is my link for Simple Adblock, it seems their are various versions with the same name.

    The problem is that Simple AdBlock becomes the ad I want to block. No thanks, Uninstalled. I used the link you sent.

    Hi Ted, I tried it before telling you about it, after removing S Adblock. It screwed up one of my iGoogle Homepage gadgets, so back to where I was originally. To me IE means 'Interference Expected'
