Re: Malicious Advertisements
I thoroughly recommend an anti malware, pup, and bad site blocker called Malwarebytes. There is a free version (permanently free), which I have run for several years and so happy I've now upgraded to the paid version.
It will not block all ads, but will block the dangerous ones plus stop you opening harmful links like phishing sites, although it gives you the option to proceed, if you insist.
It can run alongside most AV programs and is highly regarded in the industry.
Just, make sure to download it from a trusted site. Sadly there are bad people out there who have created similarly named programs that are really spyware or adware.
