Removing ad.doubleclick, etc

When surfing, I frequently can't use the Back Button because
"ad.doubleclick.net" and others take over. This does not happen at computers
in libraries and schools that I use that also have IE7. Using Firefox, I get
messages asking me if I want to block the "script" ad.doubleclick which of
course I do.
HOW can I get rid of this in IE7??
I have vers 7.0.5730.13IS and XP Media Center

Ad blocking software.

It may be a component of your security suite, or you can buy it separately.

Use a hosts file. Have fun maintaining it or repeatedly having to
download new versions. Each entry in a hosts file must resolve to a
particular host (hence its name). You cannot specify just a domain.
You cannot use wildcards. Each entry is a fully qualified hostname.
So, for example, a typical hosts file that you download from someone
else, like an MVP site, will have somewhere over 50 entries just for
Doubleclick to accomodate the different TLDs (.com, .net) and each
host in the domain in that TLD. The list becomes unwieldy in size
very quicky but then most users that go downloading someone else's
hosts file never bother to investigate what hosts that file will
block.

A firewall with URL blocking rules that allow wildcarding on the URL
string. Then you can specify a short single substring match for the
undesired URL rather than, for example, having to maintain a hosts
file with 50+ entries just for, say, Doubleclick. If you use a NAT
router, it has a firewall which might have the ability to block on URL
substrings; otherwise, use a personal software firewall. Libraries
are setup with their own firewalling appliances and/or subscribe to
censorware services or products.

Add IE7Pro which, like the firewall idea, lets you define URL blocking
rules besides the hundreds already included.

Get a security product or bundle that includes ad-blocking.

Configure your LAN connectoid's TCP settings to use OpenDNS servers
for DNS services rather than using DHCP to use the one from your ISP.
You can then define which domains to block in your OpenDNS account.
It is highly unlikely that a user or program will use the IP address
for a host and instead uses the IP name which requires a DNS lookup to
get the IP address. If you use OpenDNS (which has benefits beyond
blocking features), you can specify to block specific domains. You
can even subscribe to various censored groups so you can't go to those
sites (if and only if a DNS query is required to get to them; i.e.,
you or the program uses an IP name instead of an IP address). They
include the Phishing blocking group by default (better you never can
get there than relying on phishing filters notifying you after you get
there).

Re: Removing ad.doubleclick, etc

Thanks to all. Will try some of the suggestions. Ad blockerdoesn't work. The
new SpyBot will block but opens a window EVERY SINGLE TIME that I have to
click "deny" before proceeding. THAT is the problem with Firefox. They have a
"script" blocker that I have to open each time I go to a NEW website.(it does
retain information on previously authorized sites whcih Spy bot does not)
