SurfOnGuard can also block rich media ads. This one-of-a-kind feature works with both Internet Explorer and AOL browser. Under this broad category, you can select to block animated GIF's, background audio, Java applets, Macromedia Flash, inline images or videos.
All these options can be changed on the fly. Occasionally, SurfOnGuard may, by default, block a popup link you actually intend to open -- a CNN gallery slide show, for example. Do not panic. There is no need to close SurfOnGuard , or to change its setting for that matter. SurfOnGuard provides two easy ways to temporarily "lift" blocking:
1. Triple-click a link. Or
2. Press and hold down the Ctrl or Shift key while clicking a link or a button.
In addition, it has never been easier to manage your surfing related files with SurfOnGuard . It takes just one click to either inspect or delete the contents of Cookies, Temporary Internet Files, History, My Favorites, Temp folder, Typed URLs, File Shortcuts and Recycle Bin.
That is all you need to know about SurfOnGuard . So fire it up and let it put you in the driver's seat. Feel the difference in surfing when you are in total control.
