Given you have Diladele Web Safety installed in Windows 8 (or 7) is it possible to use custom filters in addition to those dozen of ad block subscriptions that are supported out of the box? Well yes, but you would need to do some manual work for that. In order to support your self made custom filters in AdBlock Plus format within Diladele Web Safety (and got them working in Internet Explorer 🙂 ) please do the following:
- Create file
c:\ProgramData\Diladele\Diladele Web Safety\1.0\spool\adblockand put your custom filters in it, one on each line.
- Create new registry value in
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Diladele\Diladele Web Safety\1.0\Modules\AdBlock\Subscriptions. Call this value
custom.txtand set its type to
REG_DWORD, set the value to 1.
- Restart the ddws service or just do the Disable/Enable from the Home page of ddws and from now on this
custom.txtfile will be used for custom filtering. If you happen to add new filters to it – just add, save and restart the ddws.
Hope this tip can be useful 🙂
