HOWTO: Block Ad's on Dashboard.

#21zerodefect(Topic Creator)Posted 10/11/2012 6:51:11 AM
Using this method does not remove Microsoft ads for games, demos, goodies, etc. It only removes the boxes that are clearly marked advertisement. Anyways I have had this filter on my router for the last few years and never even noticed the amount of advertising on the dash until I installed a new router. Not only was the dash slower, it took much longer to initially load up. Had to watch the spinning circle loading screen for 20 seconds before the dash appeared, all for it to download the advertisements.

If you want to look like a moron, that's your own problem. Don't get mad at me for your own failure.

For someone called zerodefect, you sure do make a lot of errors!

Am I the only one anymore that knows how to block ads, but refuses to do so?

Seriously, I don't have a problem with ads anywhere. As long as they don't interfere with what I'm doing, I use the good old fashioned method of IGNORING THEM.

Do the ads have sound that plays all the time, regardless if if you're interested in the ad or not?
Do the ads spill out of the ad box, and cover up that article you're trying to read after you start reading it?
Do the ads redirect you to an entirely different site and make it hard as hell to get back to what you were doing?

I can understand trying to block those ads, but the ads like here on gamefaqs and on the xbox dashboard? Noone is forcing you to look at them in the first place.

What next, people complaining about those billboards on the sides of the roads? "I just bought my car, I don't want to see Ford ads while I'm driving, or hear them on the radio!"


I have a problem with One Direction and Justin Bieber filling up my Dashboard. If the ads were for games on the XBLA, I'd be perfectly fine with it. This is a gaming console, not MTV or The Learning Channel.
