I have lots of Russian ads on all of my websites in chrome. Each time I do a google search on the right hand side it says Loading... when I open Craigslist for example with Adblock on it has cryptic Russian just one word in boxes where ads would be. This is really annoying since I've tried adw cleaner, norton, googles cleaner. What do you suggest to do for me to get rid of it completely

Do the following malware checks and post the logs...

Run AdwCleaner again (we want the log)

Download and run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware -

Those ones can be annoying indeed. It is either some form of adware or a browser hijacker. The following steps should help you remove them.
 
1. Check your browser for any add-ons or extensions you do not recognize and remove them.
2. Check your installed programs and see if there isn't anything suspicious that was installed lately (If there is, simply remove them).
3. Install any popular antivirus and do a quick scan (Majority of the providers do have free versions of their software). Or just use Windows Defender. It works really well in most cases.
4. Install and scan your PC with Malwarebytes and Hitman Pro to clean most adware.
 
After this, in most cases, the issues of malware should be solved. If it doesn't work, sometimes Windows has a hard time removing the malware in normal mode, if that is the case, restart Windows in "Safe mode with networking". And try the following steps again. 
Next time, Be very careful with the links that you are browsing and the files you are downloading. That should prevent a majority of commonly spread issues. Good luck!
