Many customers often complain about about Ads popping up while they surf the web. Ads can be caused by many different things but quite often can be simply removed by installing an ad blocking extension into your browser.

One of the best ad blocking extensions (Add-Ons) is called AdBlock Plus. The easiest way to install this add-on is to simply install the extension from your browser. Below I will walk you through the steps for installing AdBlock Plus on to the Google Chrome browser but all of the main browsers follow a very similar method for installing.

1. Open up your Google Chrome browser

2. Click on the three vertical dots in the top right hand corner of the screen.

3. From the menu which will appear, move your mouse pointer over MORE TOOLS and then left click EXTENSIONS

4. An extension window will now be displayed similar to the one shown below
