I think it is possible to use a third-party DNS server which sometimes Block ad DNS servers.

Re: ad blocker

Spybot and Spywareblaster has a tool for adding spyware sites to block with the Host file in Windows.

Some firewall software, parental control website monitoring software, and routers also let you block sites.

if I remember right though, websites can somehow get around basic parental control settings.

I think proxy server websites can get around parental control software.

Re: ad blocker

I think are also use for getting around country and I.P. blockers on a website, so users from blocked I.P. can use a proxy to visit a site.

Most Proxy sites are also free, and easy to use compared to VPN which require you to install a VPN software or change network settings in Windows. Paid VPN also can cost a few dollars a month.
