Anti-Banner blocks advertising information located on banners, built into interfaces of various programs installed on your computer, or displayed online. Not only are banner ads devoid of useful information but they also distract you from your work and increase the amount of traffic on your computer.

How to enable Anti-Banner 

By default, Anti-Banner in Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 is disabled. You can find detailed instructions on how to enable Anti-Banner in KB6311.

Using heuristic analysis

Banners, which addresses are not included in the standard list can be scanned using heuristic analyzer. If it is in use, Anti-Banner will analyze the images being downloaded for features characteristic of banners. Based on such analysis, the image may be identified as a banner and blocked.

  1. open the main application window
  2. in the right upper corner of the main application window, click Settings
  3. in the upper part of the Settings window, select Protection Center
  4. in the left part of the Settings window, select Anti-Banner
  5. make sure that the component is enabled (the Enable Anti-Banner box is checked)
  6. in the Scan section check the Use heuristic analysis box
  7. in the right lower corner of the Settings window, click the OK button
  8. close the main application window.
