You might also consider NoScript, I use it as well as adblockplus to put more barriers between me and adverts (any of which might be malvertising). Another useful thing to do is to make sure that none of your plugins are turned to "always activate" instead have those you sometimes use on "ask to activate" (in chrome this is called "click to play" ) and all the rest fully turned off. I am surprised this has only been happening to you for the last month, it is a practise which has been going on for years, automatically playing flash adverts have been around for quite a while. Extra note: when you deactivate your plugins, run an ad blocker, run a script blocker or a combination of all 3 notice how much faster your browser loads pages when it doesn't have to load so much junk in the corners.
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.
