Are those idiodic dancing people ads driving you nuts?  Block them by adding the following line to your “hosts” file, which is located in the c:windowssystem32driversetc folder.

The “notepad” program can edit the hosts file. Windows Vista users will need to run notepad in administrator mode since the system will not allow a non-admin user to save the file after it has been edited. In effect, the new host line tells Internet Explorer to redirect requests for the ad server ( back to your own computer (localhost) — where there is nothing to serve for the ad. Where the dancing ad used to appear and annoy the hell out of you, there will now be a somewhat cryptic message about page not found. But who cares? At least you don’t have to look at the idiotic dancing people anymore — at least until changes the name of their ad server.
