Windows 10: Adverts

    Adverts


    I am using the latest version of Windows 10 and I think that the antivirus is Windows Defender. I am not using AVG or any other antivirus.

    My problem at the moment is that I am bombarded by adverts constantly and it is driving me nuts! I have spotted that there are a number of free anti-advert programmes available but I am wondering if there is one that is particularly good for Windows 10 users and can be recommended.

    Many thanks.

    If you are talking about ADs in Windows:

    If you mean ADs within a browser, ablocker discussion is not allowed here.

    I do not block ADs and do not have any problems, so it is most like malware, cookies or cache.

    Try to clean caches/cookies with CCleaner and scan with Emsisoft Portable Malware Scan and Removal.

    Sorry! Didn't know it's prohibited here to talk about ad blockers. I see my post was deleted, I'm fine with that!

    Thank you for the replies folks. I didn't realise that I was encroaching the 'naughty' area, so my apologies.
