     This is an update to code I posted Yesterday. The sole purpose of this code is to allow you to use a free ISP, without the wasted desktop\browser space of ad banners. In the previous app the banner was hidden using Win API Functions. This worked except the banner ad people have hard coded there Banner Apps to stay on top at all times. Hence, the code to hide the banner had to be executed over and over again causing the "Hider" App to canstantly execute code. THis Method Minimizes the banner... THe banner will still be on top, but it will only be a title bar that you can position in the "White SPace" of the Browser toolbar. No adds will be displayed. YOu will not even know it's there.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
