Tip of the Week: How to Remove Intrusive Banners

Advertisements pop up everywhere. On TV, in the subway, on billboards along roads- we don’t even pay attention to them anymore. And what about banners on websites? Those are also seriously annoying! If you don’t want to see those pop-up, flashy and useless banners, we have a way for you to forget about them once and for all.

Kaspersky Internet Security includes a special component, Anti-Banner, designed to remove banners either from websites or application interfaces. By default, Anti-Banner is disabled. To enable the component, in the Settings window go to the Protection tab, select Anti-Banner and check the Enable Anti-Banner box in the right section of the window.

Kaspersky Lab specialists created a list of common banners blocked by Anti-Banner (the Use common banner list option), which is included in the application distributive.

However, when banners from a new website are not blocked, you can manually add the website to the list of blocked web addresses. In this case, you can use either symbol domain names (for example, banner2.com) or the banners’ IP addresses (for example, 64.236.92.17).

To create a list of blocked banners, in the Anti-Banner settings in the Additional section, click Settings under the Use the list of blocked URLs option. In the open window click Add and enter a banner domain name or IP address.

    I just installed Kaspersky and I don’t have anything resembling antibanner or any choices beyond System Watcher???? How do I know if I have the full version? (13.0.1.4190)
    Thank you

      Hi Robert,

      Which product and version did you install?

    To be brutally honest, KIS’ Antibanner is 60% of the reason I’m sticking with Kaspersky.

    Products by other companies might have prettier user interfaces and whatnot but I just love this feature too much to switch. Paired with the excellence of KIS, I’m sticking with Kaspersky until the world ends.

    but you should also bear in mind that many websites and blogs live from advertising

      Of course – and that is the reason why we configure Anti-Banner to block only aggressive advertising
