    Far too many ads on the web. What I hate are those pop up ads on You Tube. Why?
  4. Get Adblock Plus, it removes ads from YouTube as well as pretty much any other site.

    Guest, uBlock can do the same while using half (or less) the system resources (ram, cpu, etc.).

    @Railman, indeed, pop-ups and pop-unders are by far the worse.

    I personally use Admuncher (which is now free), plus uBlock, plus Ghostery, plus ScriptSafe.

    I disable third party cookies as well. I also manage which cookies are allowed with Vanilla.

    I also control sites with Stylish and Tampermonkey.

    Pretty damn safe this way.

    Best to buy business managed router or one that supports manage security firewalls with IP and URL web feature. I take the list of 40 known Ad sites with IP look-up along with their matching DNS. Then block all these ad sites from hitting my network PCs. I do still run the browser ad block and blocker. Make sure those are updated.
