One of the biggest annoyances: AdBlock Detection Ads. Have you ever noticed the System Performance degradation when loading an ad-running website? As I’m typing this, I’m working on a Surface 4 which is one of the worst systems for browsing content rich websites like thewindowsclub.com or foxnews.com (ok, I shouldn’t have said that ;-) ).
This picture shows the cpu usage when visiting The Windows Club. Catastrophic.
In addition, they use GetAdmiral software to detect adblockers to then prevent visitors from viewing a website. In my opinion, that is the wrong way of getting people to view advertisements. Apparently certain visitors DO NOT want the current way of advertising. Why should website owners not change THAT instead of forcing people to view the ads?
How to block Admiral Anti-AdBlock mechanism?
To avoid Admiral anti-adblock, there seem to be two convenient solutions:
- Use Chrome browser with adblocker and Run the webpage in Incognito / InPrivate mode
If you want to run Chrome with adblocker only, you’ll have to allow the adblocker to run in Chrome Incognito Mode
Allow Adblocker in Chrome Incognito Mode
In Chrome, you may need to allow the Adblocker extension to run in Incognito mode:
- Open Extensions. Just type chrome://extensions/ in the address bar and hit Enter.
- Look for the Adblocker extension and click the Details button
- Enable Allow in Incognito
Browsing in Igcognito mode, and blocking Ads, will cause GetAdmiral to appear only once. After you click “Maybe next time” (or something like that, same context), you do not get bothered again.
Now, only 1 ad is blocked (!). And the GetAdmiral notification does not appear, so I’m able to visit the website without any blockades.

TLDR, all things wrapped up:
Happy Christmas everybody! :)
