I am trying to block specific websites especially ones that pop up with ads and say "you can quit this ad in 5 secs."

Watching various US TV stations, being based overseas, when the program is starting using Adobe Flash (terrible product always crashing) there are ads from US, Italy, Asia, etc. which pop up instead of the TV program I want to watch with option to kill the ad in 5 secs. I wish to block these other websites (many from Hummas Health Care) and go straight into watching the program. I was using Ad Blockers but then the free internet website says "if you use ad blocker you cannot watch program". Also using CCleaner daily and SuperAntispyware daily. Still does not stop these ads from coming up. Am I screwed?

This is not a cure, but should let the web page load without crashing.
