Started getting ads yesterday.

moonie_57August 29, 2013

And it has slowed down gardenweb tremendously! It's making me crazy!

Using Firefox and thought I had Adblock. Now, I can't even find Adblock on my computer. Where would I find it at? Until yesterday I never saw an ad of any kind. What I'm getting is those google ads on the right-hand side of the screen.

I tried to download Adblock and my computer said the file was corrupt and would not download.

Can someone help?

Adblock Plus?

You should be able to find in under "Tools>Add-ons>Extensions" if you have it. Perhaps it's disabled?

If need be, you can grab it from or

BTW, I can't vouch for it, don't really use IE... but for those that do: Adblock Plus for IE

Thanks chugger.

I do not have any add-ons listed, which is quite odd so I went to your link to download Adblock Plus and this is the message I got. "The add-on downloaded from could not be installed because it appears to be corrupt."

Earlier today I did run Malwarebytes and Avast and also ran CCleaner. Maybe I should remove Firefox and download it again?

Yeah, I've had to do that "Reset" before too. It can work wonders.

Anyway, glad to hear you got it fixed.
