Anyone got any suggestions for decent freeware to block flash adverts over on the DS forum?

All of a sudden they are running damn annoying adverts which roll over the text you are trying to read, and load before the soddin text. They seem to forget not everyone is on 8 meg broadband, and page load times are starting to increase on my 512k bb just becuase of the damn ads. (Cant increase our bb speed - we are flat out for our phone line)

Was going to see if Firefox did it, but their (DS) database is down at the moment.

AS - have you tried to disable active scripting in the IE security tab?
and then in advanced tab untick play animations and show videos.

Been sat on DS for 10mins now with no rubbish at all.
