Hello all, great advice so far.

I've been a long time user of Naviscope; it's a proxy server, ad blocker, cookie blocker, and pop-up blocker all rolled up into one. Unfortunately, the company has gone out of business, and their website was bought by a spammer or ad company.

There has to be someone else out there who's heard of Naviscope. Any substitutes?

I use PCMag's Cookie Cop. I got it a long time ago while it was still freely downloadable. I'm sure you may be able to find a copy if you search.

I like it better than Naviscope. It blocks all my cookies, except those I've allowed, sifts javascript for hidden cookies, blocks sites based on name, IP, or content (I see very few ads), acts as a DNS cache, allows for adjustment of send/receive buffer sizes and connection time-outs, and logs http connections. It really is very handy and acts as a good buffer between my apps and the internet.

It works fine on 98, ME, 2k, XP, and 2k3.
