IE 7 Pro Adblocker
blocking more than just ads...

I just installed IE 7 Pro and am quite please with the increased speed. The only problem is that once installed and the default adblocker goes into action, my site is now missing not only the Google Adsense area, but also all of my normal images within the MS FP shared borders.

Would moving to dynamic templates (.dwt) fix this issue?
I've been meaning to do so for months and will probably switch the site over to Dreamweaver.

My concern is that many "not so savvy" users will install IE 7 Pro, then be missing much of my image content in the top, left, right and bottom borders while not know enough to change the adblocker setting.

I guess this would put the final nail in the coffin for FP shared borders.

Well, as FP was discontinued after the 2003 version I guess you might be seeing less and less of it in the market. (The FP replacement is Expression Web) Regardless, we've always suggested here that you use the FP Includes rather than the Shared Borders. The shared boarders were problematic on a number of levels.

I'm not familiar with this IE 7 Pro you're having issues with. It appears to be a 3rd party add-on for the browser. You might want to check with them as to why you're having problems. It's probably the software filtering out typical advertisement path names, which you may be able to fix by simply renaming those on your site.

False positives are a problem that I have found with several different ad blockers. Short of making the site 100% text I haven't come across a foolproof solution.
