      There is Adblock Plus. But you could always try other browsers if you like...

        Get Pale Moon if you dont want your information being tracked (as much) by google and want reliability, and install these extensions/addons:
        • Adblock
        • Facebook Disconnect
        • DoNotTrack
        • WoT

        And you should be golden

        P.S: Pale Moon is a Firefox browser, but probably the best Firefox one.

          Great qualifying question LuciD! Divine, could you please describe to us the behavior of these advertisements?

          If it's a pop-up, the built in blocker should be good enough:

          I also recommend a virus scan... just in case...

          edit: The other guys beat me to the virus idea lol. I'm thinking it's a virus but I don't want to jump to conclusion either.

          Never hurts to do a Malwarebytes scan just in case.

          Dis guy is paranoid. everything is tracked. santa gotta keep up with yo search history to send you nice present. Guess you ain't getting no present!

          You should try this, while reading a article at IBM I saw this and thought of your paranoid mentality. https://blog.mozilla.org/blog/2013/...education-for-users-open-data-for-publishers/
          Seems like a kewl feature. Though haven't tried it.


          To the OP, get rid of IE. You are most likely being bombarded due to a malware. If you are still wanting IE, use HijackThis to pinpoint the malware and deleting it while at the same time rewritting stupid IE configuration to stop redirecting.

          Agreed! I also recommend NPE as a supplement scan. Thanks for the Pale Moon info, I'm looking into it and think it's a great idea.

          Son I am discombobulated. Try that lightbeam and play around with it. You can uncover direct website tracking or that I, Benderius Maximus The 4th of the Rodriguor, have been siphoning your info for years.

              but no, in all seriousness, i know what you mean, and yes, of course tons of stuff is tracked, there's stuff that will always be tracked. But having less stuff being collected from, at least myself, makes me feel a little safer/comfortable.I also use more than just those extensions i listed as well.

                hijackThis is probably the best for adware, malwarebytes anti malware program never got rid of mine. Do a scan with hijackthis, most likely will fix the problem.

                or fuck something up. You have to know what's what and really watch what it wants to change, because 99% of the time, the stuff that comes up is nothing harmless... It just literally shows you everything that is changed that isn't part of a windows update or something.

                  I've always heard Ad-Block.

                  I suggest installing Chrome, it's much better, or Firefox, but Firefox is a RAMwhore, Chrome doesn't.
                  Ad-block removes all ads and also removes ads on Youtube. While for that's actually not a good idea, for you it's probably a good idea :razz:
