Suddenly every site I go into using Chrome I get adds appearing. Is the free adblock software worth downloading to stop this rot?

Thanks for any ideas.

You say suddenly...that implies you have adware. I suggest using Adblock Plus if you don't have an ad blocker installed in your browsers.

I also suggest you ask one of the moderators to move your topic to the Am I Infected What Do I Do Forum if the ad blocker doesn't block

the ads.

Adblock Plus :: Add-ons for Firefox     Adblock Plus - Chrome Web Store

Adblock Plus for Edge browser   Adblock Plus for IE

 

You can block the ad and tracking cookies from installing on your computer by blocking third party cookies.

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

Once you have blocked the install of those cookies then run CCleaner to remove the existing ones.

 

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 Google Chrome and Avast.

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

Thanks a lot buddy215 however there is one thing I forgot to mention about and that is I did a system restore before shutting the laptop down the night before,I am getting old you know! So I think doing that would have removed the ad blocker i had. I have downloaded Adblocker as you suggested and all seems okay now. I really don't venture into many web sites except new papers etc& of course computer sites such as this one & my email etc.So I will keep an eye on things and see how it goes from here on....Again my thanks.
