How to Disable Infolinks in IE8

Infolinks is a popular online advertising service that automatically adds double-underlined links to keywords in the text of websites using the service. When you pass your cursor over an infolink, a pop-up advertisement window appears. Many users find this extremely annoying, but the links can be disabled by telling your browser not to accept data from sites on the infolinks.com domain.

Step

Open Internet Explorer's "Tools" menu, and click "Internet Options."

Step

Click the "Content" tab. If the "Settings" button under "Content Advisor" is available, click it; if not, click "Enable" to activate the Content Advisor, then click "Settings."

Step

Click the "Approved Sites" tab, and enter the following URL in the text box:

Step

*.infolinks.com

Click "Never." This tells Internet Explorer never to display content originating from any URL ending with the "infolinks.com" domain name.

Step

Click "OK" to confirm the changes.
