is a component of the Computer Protection
functional module in Kaspersky PURE 2.0
is designed to block 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.
By default Anti-Banner in Kaspersky PURE 2.0 is disabled, but you can enable it.Kaspersky Lab
specialists have compiled a banner and mask list based on specially conducted research and have included it with the Computer Protection
installation package. Banner ads, which match the masks on the list, will be blocked by Anti-Banner
unless banner blocking is disabled. Additionally to the standard list of banner ads Anti-Banner
can also use heuristic analyzer
. 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 typical of banners. Based on such analysis, the image may be identified as a banner and blocked.
Besides that, you can create white and black lists of banners, by adding banner masks to them, to determine whether a banner should be allowed or blocked.
