I don't know if this is a dead topic or just hasn't come up, I cannot find an answer.

I publish adsense on my site.
I have NIS 2004, IE, fox, on my desktop and despite every attempt to change all the settings I cannot see the ads on my site. No big deal except placement concerns, I can view them on my laptop.
My question is, why can I see them on other sites? Is it my blocking settings or are they using some work around?
I've heard about programs that block users from the site if they have ad blocking on/or JavaScript off. On my site, those with JavaScript off can't click some of the links but I have other ads so I don't see the sense of blocking anyone.
What infuriates me today is that while researching my stats, I noticed there was a 30% difference (down) on just one of the pages I compared between my server stats and the adsense stats. I realize there is a lot of variables to the stats but that seems to be a big difference that I can only attribute to ad blocking.
