    That's weird, I have never seen a single youtube ad in like five years running ublock origin. Unless you meant other video sites.

    Could be YAB catches them first, but so far it's working for me, some overlap is ok especially if one filters it out before the other sees it. I was still seeing "print" and other inline ad's with only ublock Origin in Youtube and Facebook, so maybe it's just my use - but I do enable *all* the filters in ublock origin...as usual YMMV :)

    Nailed it.

    And regarding drivers: Moving from XPDM to WDDM f*cked over a lot of early adopters, thanks to Intel who did not release WDDM drivers for the then-integrated graphics of the time.
    Windows Vista Preview editions supported the older XPDM standard for GPU drivers, which may have led beta testers to believe that their integrated graphics would work fine in the retail product.
    That was not to be.

    Vista was simply ahead of its' time (on launch) and vendors were not ready for it (mass uptake and driver availability).
