Virtually every site I go to I am getting adverts from Adchoices.  Malwarebytes didnt remove it.  How can I remove adchoices from my browsing experience?  Thanks in advance!

AdChoices - Wikipedia


AdChoices isn't actually installed on your computer. The websites that show those ads allows them for profit. Some websites' content is

unaffected by you blocking the ads. Others will insist on you allowing the ads to see or use the content such as game sites.


Follow the directions below for blocking AdChoices, cleaning the computer and removing adware that may be on your computer.


Block Third Party cookies....aka...ad/ tracking cookies. Once you have blocked them...run CCleaner to delete the existing ones.

How to disable third-party cookies in all major web browsers


Use CCleaner to remove Temporary files, program caches, cookies, logs, etc. Use the Default settings. No need to use the

Registry Cleaning Tool...risky. Pay close attention while installing and UNcheck offers of toolbars....especially Google.

After install, open CCleaner and run by clicking on the Run Cleaner button in the bottom right corner.

Install an ad blocker in your browsers. If you don't have one, I suggest using Adblock Plus. Once installed click on the ABP icon at the top of

your browsers and choose Filter Preferences. Then UNcheck the box next to Allow some non-intrusive advertisements.

Adblock Plus - Chrome Web Store  Adblock Plus :: Add-ons for Firefox  Adblock Plus for IE  Adblock Plus for Edge browser



Download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop. (compatible with Windows 7, 8 and 10)

  • Close all open programs and internet browsers.
  • Double click on adwcleaner.exe to run the tool.
  • Click on Scan button.
  • When the scan has finished click on Clean button.
  • Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.
  • Please post the contents of that logfile with your next reply.
  • You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.
  • download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
  • Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
  • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
  • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
  • Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message
