Using AdBlock on your Windows computer is actually very easy but if you are new to this process, you will definitely need to pay attention to the steps listed below. This is because you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We will help you download and install AdBlock on your computer in 4 simple steps below:


1: Download an Andriod Software emulator for Windows

The importance of the emulator is that it emulates or immitates an android environment on your computer, making it super easy to install and run android apps from the comfort of your PC without buying a phone that runs android. Who says you cannot enjoy both worlds? To begin, you can download such an emulator app made by too top dogs in the space.
A. Nox App . OR
B. Bluestacks App .
Personally, I recommend the "B" option as Bluestacks is very popular so if you run into any trobles using it, you can find good solutions on Google or Bing (lol). 


2: Now Install the Software Emulator on your Windows PC

If you successfully downloaded the Bluestacks.exe or Nox.exe, go to your Downloads folder on your computer or anywhere you ususally store downloaded files.
Once you have find it, click it to install the application. It should start the installation process on your PC.
Click Next to accept the EULA License agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application.
If you do the above correctly, the Software will be successfully installed.


3: How to Use AdBlock for Windows PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and locate the search bar. Now type AdBlock in the search bar and hit Search. You will easily see the app. Click on AdBlock application icon. A window of AdBlock will open and it will display the app in your Emulator Software. Hit the Install button and your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.

App Reviews

  • Impressive Adblock for Web-browsing

    This application works amazingly well when browsing on applications such as Safari or Google Chrome. What most people forget to do is import DNS rules and set it to their IP address; if not, it won’t block much of the ads. The application used to block ads that were on other applications (I.e. mobile games and streaming sites), but that feature disappeared. Hopefully they can bring it back and block the constant ads on other apps. One major critique is that this application has trouble blocking pop-up advertisements that redirect you to a different site, which breaks the original link that the user wanted to browse. Hope that they can add an option to blacklist or block certain ad-links that break the site.
  • Used to be my favorite app...

    Before they changed the way the app worked (I think they had to do so because of an iOS update), this was hands down a 5-star app that I absolutely loved, I had forgotten the existence of advertisements. Now I forget that I had AdBlock because of the constant issues, I need to reset my connection, disable and reenable AdBlock and restart the app I want to block the ads of in between each one of those steps to have it work, until I have suboptimal internet connection for a split second, because then it’s all over again. This app made me in love with itself when I first got it, and now makes me reboot my days away. This is such a great app that has turned very inefficient, I hope it redeems its qualities.
  • This app is great but sometimes you have to manually find ad domains

    Most of the time, the ad domains are already blocked, but a few apps have domains that aren’t blocked and ads can slip through. I had to manually find the ad domains and separate them from regular domains. Some domains let the app run, so if I block that, I screw up the app. I manage to find all the ad domains and separate from regular domains. If it wasn’t for the new domain detector, I wouldn’t be able to find all the ad domains, because those ad domains didn’t came up on the last version but did now. This app needs to be kept up to date for the domains so I wouldn’t have to look them up manually.
  • Disappointing

    I had hopes this would be the final stop in the war against increasingly overbearing mobile ads. Unfortunately, most of the good reviews seem to be from previous versions of the app. As far as my mobile ad experience, I don’t even notice a difference when it’s on/off. I still get the same ads at the same frequency. Same annoying redirects, same pop-ups, same video ads. In fact, the only way I can tell it’s even enabled is because it prevents certain pages from loading altogether. Then I’m left with no ads...but also a blank page :^) The proxy is meh. It’s nice in theory but it noticeably slows things down and it can be murder on battery life. If you’re looking for a seamless ad-free mobile experience, unfortunately this is not it.
  • Very effective, but turns itself off, doesn’t work in Google

    This app works well and blocks many ads, especially video ads, though many pop-up ads get through anyway, and it does not seem to work at all in Google-based apps, which is a serious limitation. The biggest problem is that it’s also not persistent. Leave your iPhone alone for any significant length of time, such as overnight or for a tew hours, and the app will have turned itself off and you’ll need to manually turn it back on again. Defeats the purpose significantly. Can’t give this more than a 3-star review until these basic flaws are corrected.

    I love this app for it's functionality and features. However it drains the battery on my phone. It's a major major problem I habe with this app. I watched my battery run down from fully charged to 50% or less withing a couple hours and I'm by no means a heavy user. When I check the battery stats it showed as the #1 for battery consumption with more than 50% of overall battery usage. This happened on countless occasions. I would delete the app and then the battery usage goes back to normal. Also my phone was always hot when I had this app installed. All of this happened after a recent update. I love this app and want too use it but I cant, because it is devastating to my battery.
  • If at first you don’t succeed...

    By TooFastForITunes
    Note to prospective buyers: you get what you pay for. At under $2, don’t expect a miracle or even decent support. I installed the app and configured my device per the instructions, but nothing was blocked in Safari. I cleared the Safari cache and restarted my device. Still no luck. I tried emailing their support team, and they gave me a form letter repeating the installation instructions, which I confirmed I had done, and asked for next steps. They did not reply. I then read the reviews and saw that other users had some luck by deleting the app, restarting their devices, and reinstalling. I tried this and it worked. Long story short: if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again!
  • Adds their own ads!!

    By thatguy2399
    I have a raspberry pi filtering out all of the ads on out home network so there’s barely any ads on our home network. I bought this for when I’m using data or on another WiFi network and noticed something funny tonight. I was on my home network on iFunny, an app usually ad free on my home network, had ads. I was very confused so I disabled the app, closed then re opened iFunny. The ads were gone due to my home network filtering them. I have reason to believe that this app is taking out other people’s ads and replacing the spots with their own ads. That’s really crappy considering I paid $2 for this app. I’m very disappointed and would love a refund. Hopefully this helps someone else from being tricked.
  • It once again is like a dream!

    Probably all you need to know has already been written here by others, so I'm writing to share the wonder. With this baby, you will experience hassle-free app usage with little to none intrusive ads all through your iOS experience. Nonetheless, it could be normal for some very sneaky ads to get through, scarcely of course, still it’s a blessing to have an ad-repellent like this. It seems like the plague of ads has spread all over the internet anyways, thanks to our “trusted” monopolistic tech giants like Google and the nice innocent apologetic Facebook.
  • Almost perfect universal blocker

    By mleuker
    AdBlock is probably the most sophisticated blocker on the App Store, offering both, content and DNS based blocking options. Contrary to many of the more basic blockers, it allows to choose (and import!) blocking lists, making it much more flexible than competing apps. The only feature currently missing is a whitelist mechanism for the content blocker. Even if it does not affect the DNS rules, users could turn off list based blocking on certain pages (e.g. that they want to support) and only rely on the DNS blocker; or use content blocking only more flexibly.
