I love Google Chrome and I ALWAYS use google everyday, I do mean everyday! If I went to browser history and type in google, there WILL have result for google on each day! 

well maybe not everyday but seriously almost everyday!

anyway, there is a newfound problem that I don't like, I have researched on google (duh!) for solution but they all didn't fixed and this is my first post on bleeping computer, and the first forum I come to for help...

the problem is the adverts, they didn't act like that before, in fact, never! until starting last month. 

when I type in something in the google search, for example "bleeping computer", the results will show up but then in few seconds, there will be a page long of adverts pop up and pushes the result down below.

this only happens on chrome. I don't like edge. 

the normal google adverts will have a tiny icon pictured with a green square with "AD" inside and this fake bullbleep adverts does not. 


when I searched for something and I want to click the first link, I clicked but the bleep adverts pop up just right same time when I click I have to press back to the result and wait for the bleep ad to pop ;up then i have to scroll down looking for the link i wanted to click. it's messy!!



Please help me! 

I have reinstalled the operation system. not full wipe tho. 



I have a GIF showing my problem.
