    Used to have Malwarebytes and they had a section where you could put a domain name ans anything matching jus would no show up. Well no longer have that program but wonder if theres something similar?

    I am currently experiencing a lot of ads, not malicious as far as I can tell but annoying. Its only on Chrome, FF does not have issues.

    Any ideas? thanks

    You may also want to run a malware scanner to make sure Chrome or your computer hasn't been infected by adware/malware. You could put Malwarebytes back on and do a scan.

    If it's just the normal type of ads right on web-pages you can also get get a third party ad blocker like uBlock Origin that is available from the Google Chrome Store.

    If you have an adblock of any sort installed, and the ads are showing despite it, it is probably an adware, and you have to clean your browser/computer of it. So you can install the adblock first and check if the problem is solved. If not, run a scan.
