    Is Anyone Else Having This Problem???

    Within the last couple of weeks I've been getting pop-up ads that appear just above the bottom tool bar or down the right side of the screen. My ad blocker isn't stopping them. Anybody have any suggestions for how to stop them. The one at the bottom is about an inch high and the one on the side is about 2" wide. They are most annoying.

    TIA

    Once I installed Mozilla Foxfire I never had that problem again. I know just how annoying it can be.

    Hmmmm... I just had that happen to me this morning. I couldn't figure out how it got past my ad blocker.

    I have the same problem on whatever on line site I go to. I have ad blocker, but it still comes. Can't get rid of it.

    I have checked my settings and increased the ad blocker setting. It hasn't helped. I even went to a site to op-out of gettings these type ads. That hasn't helped either.

    My son installed Mozilla Firefox on mine a few months ago and no more ads and its really cut down on my junk mail too. Now when I send it to Spam and delete it I never receive them again. Its a free download
