I have Chrome, IE and Windows 7. I have seen "ads not from this site" on lots of websites and I want to figure out which program or addon it is coming from.

I don't use Chrome or IE and have never seen any statements about 'ads not from this site' while using Opera or Firefox. Are you given an option as to whether the ads referred to get displayed and, if so, are the choices you make remembered on your next visit to the site(s) in question?

I use a browser tool called Ghostery which may help cut down on some of the advertising you are seeing (I have it set to block everything). There are versions for Chrome and IE and you can read more about it here;

EDIT: The warning you get may be the result of the improved security in W7 so there could be a setting somewhere that you can adjust to reject the ads. I'm still using XP so I don't know how you would check whether this is a W7 thing.

I've never seen that statement in any site I've been in. I use FF13.1 and adblock so maybe.......
I really don't mind ads unless they sit in the middle of the page and I have to 'X' out of them to see behind.
