pop up ads

Post by mathman » Fri Nov 15, 2019 11:02 pm

I have two computers, each running the latest version of Avant, Windows 7 and Windows 10. On the Windows 10 machine I am plagued by popup ads. On Windows 7 these are very rare. Why, and can I do anything about it?

I never rarely get ads
Go to Tools - Mozilla Firefox - add ons - find uBlock origin and add / allow, keep standard settings
Also whilst you there go through your Firefox options and select the ban ads options
Avant is the greatest

Installed uBlock origin (nothing more) - seems to have worked.
