Installing and Enabling Adblock Plus in Internet Explorer
Download ABP for IE from here, run it after saving to your computer.
Install it and restart the browser, you can see ABP’s icon in IE status bar (restart browser if already open during the install) and you can also find Adblock Plus for IE Browser Help Object being installed and enabled under Toolbars and Extensions on Manage add-ons dialog.
You can notice AdblockPlusEngine.exe process running Under Processes tab on Task Manager even though Internet Explorer is closed, that process is related to this. Developer is working on fix for that.
You can right click on ABP icon in status bar and can disable ads on current page, Disable ads every where, access its Settings and check updates for it.
Adblock Plus Options
From Options page, you can able to select and apply filter to block ads in websites. By clicking Manage button on options page you can manually add sites manually to disable ad blocking.
Developer feels since its first release will not bring same experience in Firefox and Chrome as he agrees there are some inconsistences that needs to be eliminated in the way blocking and element hiding rules work in Internet Explorer.
Happy ad blocking in IE.
