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 domain.

Skill level:


  1. 1

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

  2. 2

    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."

  3. 3

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


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

  4. 4

    Click "OK" to confirm the changes.
