Will Ad Muncher ever work in the Metro interface of Windows 8 when it comes out?

"enable enhanced protected mode is off but still getting ads in weatherbug metro app. Is their any other way to remove this one or is it just a updated ad filter we need? 4260 is running right now.

oh you'll still need to add the process name if it's not already filtered by default.

Filter Targets tab.

which program?

if it's not added by default you need to tell Ad Muncher to filter it via the Filter Targets tab.

you may also need to reboot. (once)

I'm interested as well in information or detailed instructions on how to make AdMuncher work with any Metro App or Metro IE at least, so far AdMuncher does not work for me at all when using the Metro UI.

But this does not work...

Enhanced protected mode is disabled by default on a new installation of Windows 8 (and this setting apparently is effective for desktop mode only, metro IE appears to be always running in enhanced protected mode) and iexplore is filtered by default, but AdMuncher does not filter ads in metro IE. It does in desktop mode but not when using metro. In addition there appears to be no way to make AdMuncher filter ads for any other metro app. In the filter targets section of the AdMuncher configuration dialog appears no single metro app in the "Programs that made connections" list and even adding wwahost (which seems to be responsible for running most metro apps) to my filter targets (and rebooting) makes no difference. AdMuncher does not filter apps when using metro, at least on my system. So apparently some additional advice or hints are needed...

You aren't disabling the correct thing then.

Enhanced Protected mode is disabled by default for IE in Desktop mode, I did not change this setting. From the same page you referenced:

"Metro style Internet Explorer always runs with Enhanced Protected Mode enabled – there isn’t anything that you need to configure – just browse. Because Metro style Internet Explorer offers plug-in free browsing, the compatibility impact of this security feature is minimal."

I can't disable this for metro IE and for me AdMuncher is not working with any metro app including metro IE.

please search google on how to do this.
