Hi

I am using a laptop with windows 7. When I go to websites like Lowes I have hot deal adds on the side and more adds on the top. The adds on the side are always getting in the way.

 

I added add block and downloaded stop script. I also run super antispyware.

 

What else can I do to get rid of these adds?

I used lowes as an example, visiting Lowe's Home Improvement, at www.lowes.com.  The only advertisements I see are those appearing to be specific for the lowes website.  Also important to say is I did this visit using Google Chrome version 39 under Windows 7, with the extension u block installed.  The u block icon in the upper right tool bar of Chrome is showing 29 items blocked.

Is this done using Google Chrome for the website visits, and have you any ad-blocker extension installed in the browser?

Adds eliminated by just switching to google chrome. Haven't added ad-blocker extension to it. Had ad blocker with firefox and had a lot of adds.
