    Can you disable shockwave add-ons using HTML?

    Hi,

    I've got my own website that is hosted free, and as a consequence I'm getting an advertisement on the home page. I've noticed that I can disable Shockwave in IE to stop this, but obviously this doesnt work for anyone else visiting the site.

    My question is... is there a HTML code that would automatically disable shockwave scripts from running?

    Thanks in advance.

    Alan.

    You've got no chance of doing it with HTML, but there may be a javascript out there somewhere that could help you hide the ads. Take a look at the source of the page as a visitor would view it, if the ads are part of a specific class you may be able to alter that class with javascript/CSS to hide them.

    You will be breaching the terms of your hosting package though, and they will ban your account if they realise.

    Cheers. I started to realise this couldnt be done with HTML. You cannot see the class if you view source as a visitor would view it so I'm guessing this might not be possible.

    Looks like I might have to find 4 a year or whatever it costs
