Assuming you're using Safari, download and install the free AdBlock Plus extension for Safari.

Download from here.

Make sure you download the correct version of AdBlock Plus for the browser you're using.

Thanks, I'm all up to date with that, and what I just ran successfully identified a whole bunch of that stuff. As I said earlier I'll let it run for a little while then send the developers a donation. Thanks for your advice.

"Let it run for a little while"?
This is an extension for your web browser to kill ads, not an app.

Bryan, everyone? Do we have a stickie on ads and malware yet?
Something with the adblockers and AdwareMedic and whatnot?

No we don't Craig. Would you like to do one if Bryan agrees (which I'm sure he will)? We can put in our Security Awareness forum.

Just looking over there... we have the one Sticky done by Bryan. Perhaps you can add on to it? Let's see what Bryan would like to do.

If he wants I'll see what I can come up with.

That's a good idea.
