MajorGeeks.com -filter non wanted updates.
Hi,

Don't know if 1 person on this planet is actually interested in this one, but anyway, 1 post doesn't take that much space here.

The following filter is good for getting rid of "new program updates" you totally have no interest in, and also to not show some shareware that gets updated almost daily because the author of them thinks it's a great way to have his shareware pop up daily to lure potential users/victims to his site.

Also, Virus definition updates for Anti Virus tools you don't own, or have no single interest in.

Quote:[Patterns]
Name = "MajorGeeks.com - Remove Specific Updates - Tpy (20130507)"
Active = TRUE
Multi = TRUE
URL = "$TYPE(htm)(http://www.|)majorgeeks.com/"
Bounds = "<div class="geekytitle">*<!-- Template: files -->"
Limit = 800
Match = "*(a-squared|FeedDemon|Throttle|SuperRam|PCMedik|PCBoost|GameGain|TweakRAM|Norton Virus Definitions|* for Android|AOL Instant Messenger)*"



If you want to do the contrary, highlight specific updates you have special intrest in, you can use the following filter.
All you selected programs will be highlighted with a black font on a light-green background. (see attached screenshot)

Quote:[Patterns]
Name = "MajorGeeks.com - Highlight Specific Updates - Tpy (20130506)"
Active = TRUE
Multi = TRUE
URL = "$TYPE(htm)(http://www.|)majorgeeks.com/"
Bounds = "<a href*</a>"
Limit = 800
Match = "(*>)\1((AnyDVD|Total Uninstall|Combofix|Firefox|Opera)*)\2</a>\3"
Replace = "\1<span style\="background-color:#BAE2C0; color:#000000;\">\2</span></a>\3"

* You can use 1 or both the filters to your lickings.
** For both filters, replace bold items with those of your choice, you only need to insert to starting words/chars for the items you don't want to see.

[EDIT] Used quotes to be able to bold the items.
