I have just installed Norton Internet Security 2011 to test it but I'm not able to find any feature that would block website adverts which is really annoying. I realize this is a test version which is limited but i can't find anything about blocking website ads in the full version either reading the technical documentation. Is this feature even considered in your products ?
I have used Kaspersky protection for several years but thought i would test something new, Kaspersky blocks website ads, even flash ads and the commercial in internet TV clips.

No Symantec is NOT blocking any ads or flash ads. If you are using IE8 follow this instruction to get ad blocker: http://forums.overclockers.co.uk/showthread.php?s=

Also if you want to block flash *and flash ads* install spyware blaster. In case you don't trust me that spyware blaster is a trustable software visit:

Welcome to the Norton Community Forum
The NIS 2011 trial version is the full version you would get if you had already paid for it. The only difference is the amount of time that the program will run for before it will expire and stop working. You can go to the Adobe Flash Player manager and limit cookies and flash activities thru the manager also. Norton's hasn't had an ad blocker lately because most browsers have an ad blocker in them.
You can suggest that though in the New Ideas section of the Forum.
