    Chances are if you've ever gone to college you know what this program does.

    I spend most of every workday looking at its reports, Lately every webpage has started incorporating social networking feeds and other such rubbish. Ad-muncher or extensions block them but its a pain to synchronize across multiple computers.

    So i killed two birds with one stone (blocking pirated programs from calling home) by installing Forefront TMG on my home network in an edge firewall topology.

    Grabbed fanboys adblock list http://www.fanboy.co.nz/adblock/opera/complete/urlfilter.ini to supplement the built in "web ads category" and imported it with http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc302454.aspx .

    Set a category override to not display an error page and the contents of my hosts file loopbacks .

    Finished.

    Its the perfect ad-blocking solution because no software or configuration is needed on the computers it even works with shit arm devices.

    Anyway if you've got a decent server its worth the time setting TMG up.
