    A new computer with Vista seems designed to allow all advertising.
    When you go to any of the browsers, Firefox, Netscape, or Windows the
    advertisements connections roll through the lower tool bar and there all
    over the place.
    Firefox's latest version doesn't support ad block.
    Neither does Netscape or Internet Explorer.
    What gives?
    Any problems with older version and Vista?

    Just like any other OS for any universal calculation machine. Your point
    being?

    Windows is no browser.

    Nonsense. No webbrowser allows rendering content outside the window area.

    It does. See AdBlock Block, see Nuke Anything, see Grease Monkey.
