Internet Junk Buster is a free Opensource Non-Caching proxy for personal use on your PC or server system for company networks or even ISPs. Internet Junk buster is a privacy-enhancing proxy that blocks ads and banners that you wish you never want to see on websites.

While designed primarily for Linux and UNIX environments, there is a seperate installer package available for Windows. This can run on Windows XP,2000 and earlier versions (should work on Windows 2003 but not tested)

Installing and configuring Internet Junk Buster is just a few steps and once installed and started, it runs as a DOS command and listens on port 8000. all you then need to do is to change the proxy settings on your browser.

To install Internet Junk Buster simply download the ZIP file from here and unzip to a location say C:\ so the utility will be in C:\Ij20\

Now, Internet Junk Buster is ready to run. Simply open the folder and run junkbstr.exe. This starts Internet Junk Buster and starts listening on Port 8000.
