Was just about to delete my post as I've noticed this 'intrusion' is showing on other internet sites as well. But now that I've seen the reply of Eurica's I'll leave it and see if others are also having this problem.

Adblock? How can one get this and how does it work? In other words for someone like me. Those books, Computers for Dummies and all the other Dummy like books were written expressly for me.

Toemaar without Google to look up everything I would be useless as well!

I use Google Chrome as a search engine and that has a thing called AdBlock. So if you Google 'AdBlock for Chrome' it will give you results for downloads. That's what I did. Hope that helps.

Maybe one of the clever people here can explain it better.

Comes up on the left hand side, as I look at it, of my screen and has the headings: Related Searches: Internet Forum Software, A New Post, Forum Software, Free Hosting etc etc.

Is this part of the new Forum set up? If so why are there headings like Online Bachelor Degree, Upgrade My Phone, BUY GOLD AND SILVER?

I click on the small x at the top of this "advert" and the thing goes away only to return when I go to another page on the Forum. Please, if this is part of the new setup kindly take another look at how this operates. Thanks.

Edit> Have clicked on a couple of the items mentioned and they all take me to a site known as Topic Torch and then each one advertises lots of other sites that one can go to. Similar to a Google search.
BB You have spyware on your machine and should run a good antimalware tool to clean it.

As BB states, he has little understanding so using what we consider common terms and explanations are not going to help him.

@BB - I suggest going to http://www.lavasoft.com/products/ad_aware_free.php and click on "Free Download".
Then follow the installation instructions and then run it.

Fully agree, get the machine clean and then worry about blocking ads.

Also agree 100%.

"Malwarebytes" is an excellent product; cleans where other products fail to penetrate!

I think it's still available for evaluation, for Free! Sorted me out when I had the dreaded Skype virus around 18-months back.

Cheers, K.

Ad-Aware is well respected and does it all. I haven't heard of Malware Antibytes, do you have a URL Ivan?
I'm not a Google products fan.
