All ad site on Google now blocked

Since install AdBlock, I can no longer access any ad sites, even from reputable companies, on Google searches with the googleadservice in the URL. Is this the way it has to be in order to prevent malicious third party sites from being accessed? Is there a switch that can allow an individual site to be accessed or does each site need to be white-listed individually.?

    Hi Don,

    Well, if you would like to whitelist the majority of the sites you visit and blacklist only sites with the most annoying ads, you can do that, but you'll need to disable AdBlock's "acceptable ads" option. That's because the Acceptable Ads filter list is thousands of whitelist filters. Whitelist rules override blacklist ones. If you a site you want to blacklist is on that list, you won't be able to block its ads.

    1. Click the AdBlock button and select Options, then click the GENERAL tab.
    2. Untick Allow some non-intrusive advertising.
    3. Click the CUSTOMIZE tab, then click Show ads everywhere except for these domains.
    4. Enter the websites where you don't want to see ads. Those are the only sites where ads will be blocked.

    Does this get you close to where you want to go? Or am I missing the intent of your question?

    You've explained it adequately and I understand my options.

    Are you familiar with a program called HOSTSMAN? It uses a file of
    undesirable third party URLs and automatically routes the call-up back to
    my own computer, thus not allowing me to open it. However, it has a
    convenient feature that allows me to temporarily switch it off to allow
    access for a selected site that I feel confident to open. For example, I
    cannot open the Home Depot site that shows the little Google ad logo, so I
    must access the direct URL instead of going through this third-party host.
    I could switch it off with HOSTSMAN, but with AdBlock I would have to make
    a determination on every URL, guessing if they are safe or if they are part
    of the third-party hosts that dump malware and bloatware.

    Hi Don,

    I hadn't heard of HostsMan, but I looked it up. It gives you an easy way to manage your hosts file, so that you don't have to edit the file directly. That's pretty cool.

    I'm going to change my suggestion slightly. I think what may be more helpful for you is to subscribe to the Malware Protection filter list in AdBlock's options, and still disable the Acceptable Ads list.

    The Malware Protection list does pretty much what HostsMan is doing for you. It's maintained by the folks at, the Internet authority on malware hosts, and is updated as soon as a new one is identified. With this list on, you won't have to guess whether a URL is safe.

    I'm still suggesting you not use the Acceptable Ads list, but for a different reason. It contains thousands upon thousands of whitelist rules for sites that serve ads. Since we don't maintain that list I can't guarantee that any of those sites won't run up against HostsMan's own filters.

    Thanks, Rhana,
    I've made those two changes in the filters and I'll see what happens.

    Just a suggestion, now that I've got your ear: See if you can program an
    optional switch like Hostsman into your program in the future. I've
    uninstalled it now, hoping that with your filters and Google's filters, all
    will be well.

    I'll let you know.
