Advert Overlays

Post by andyjhatton »

The last few days I've had a few advert overlays.
I appreciate the need for adverts, somebody has to pay the bills.
But these are really intrusive and annoying.

It’s not just me then, I was wondering if I’d got some sort of virus.

Seen them myself and not sure where they have come from? Need to investigate a bit more.

Checked in the background and remembered I had made a change to Google’s settings that ad experiments could take place.
This was one of them. I’ve since stopped those ads appearing as I didn’t like them.
Other new styles of advertising may appear however.

I'd pay a yearly sub to not have adverts. Just a thought.
