    we are developing an ad blocking application in VB in which the ad server url's are saved in the users HOST file. This way these listed url's will be blocked.

    There is one slight help that we need...

    When a user visits a web site , and there is a new banner ad displayed... how to retrieve the url of that banner AD without manually right clicking and going to properties and copying the url and then pasting it in the HOST editor.

    We want to automate this process.

    for eg: when user hovers over the AD, a block button should appear. On clicking the button, the URL of that AD should be copied and pasted in the HOSt editor.

    Please do help asap. Our project deadline is few days from now.
