In the “Javascript Options” dialog, click the “Choose” button, select the directory where you saved the AdSweep.js file. Click “OK” to save.


  • If you use Chrome, extract, rename the AdSweep.js file to AdSweep.user.js (important!). Then follow the instructions on the Chromium web site to enable user scripts and to place your AdSweep.user.js file into Chrome’s user script directory.

If reading the instructions on the Chromium web site, you wonder how to place the command flag, this means you just have to right-click the shortcut icon of Google Chrome, either on your desktop or in your Start menu, and click “Properties”. Select the second tab named “Shortcut”, and in the “Target” field, append –enable-user-scripts with a space in between. For instance:

Before: C:\Users\PC\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe
After: C:\Users\PC\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe –enable-user-scripts

Don’t forget the space in between, and the command flag –enable-user-scripts has to be outside the double quotes, if any. Click “OK” to save changes.
  • If you use Mozilla Firefox, install the Greasemonkey extension, restart your browser. Then extract, rename AdSweep.js to AdSweep.user.js and drag and drop it into Mozilla Firefox. The Greasemonkey dialog will ask you if you want to install AdSweep. Click ok. You’re done.


  • If you use Safari, you can use AdSweep, you just have to install Greasekit and install AdSweep as a user script.
