    getting ads on Google ? 15th Jul 17 at 9:47 PM
    For a week now , when searching for anything on Google,, ( using Google Chrome) it first comes up with the sort of list of things i expect .....but within a second or two page reloads and then shows about a dozen fairly irrelevant listings ... but i notice " Ads x " click on top right .. which then reloads the page getting rid of the irrelevant ones and takes me to what i expect .

    How do i stop these "Ads" ?

    thanks

    Get an adblock extension on Chrome, uBlock Origin or Adblock will both work for desktop.

    click addons in your browser. Get ublock not adblock its better.
    Punctuation, Spelling and Grammar will be used sparingly. Due to rising costs of inflation.

    My contribution to MSE. Other contributions will only be used if they cost me nothing.

    Due to me being a tight git.

    If you use Kaspersky to protect your computer, you can go to the settings and block ads.

    Also change your search engine to DuckDuckGo, they don't sell your soul to the advertising devils, nor share your searches.
