    Please someone remind me what F key do I push when it is booting to get to the restore points? I have not did a restore point in years and If I remember on of the F keys gets me there. ?? Maybe I am totally wrong. While I am waiting for more restore info from you all I will google it also.

    This is Ghostery, a "privacy browser extension for Chrome," screen cap:

    I'm not saying this is the best, but I've used it on several PCs and one under-powered laptop and it made the biggest difference on the under powered laptop! There was one website that would take forever to load - and with Ghostery it would load normal.

    I'm on a Mac, but those look more like notifications than ads; is there a Notifications setting you can tweak or disable in Chrome or Windows?

    only 5 ads blocked?

    Ad Blocker Plus shows 13 blocked for "chrome"

    That doesn't look like a pop-up. It looks like some third-party program running on your machine.

    I'm showing 7 (seven) now; it depends on different factors, apparently.

    Also note I apparently don't block a few 'trackers' like Gravatar and FB. They have been "cleared" (their scripts allowed to run) by me at some point. I use FB to annoy my sister and her friends.

    Those come from the political forums.

    Don't go there. ;)

    Did you work a fake P5 station?:eek:

    I tried all of the suggested add-ons, my current favorite is uBlock Origin.

    That said, I don't think those are pop-ups. They look more like notifications. Make sure you disable them, and always answer NO, when a website offers this 'service'.

    Also, check for Windows desktop gadgets that may have been installed.
