    It now appears that every single word that I type is now game for placing an add on my screen. I booked a car this week to pick up at an airport, now I am being plagued by adds for car hire at this airport.They should pay more attention to the fact that the car has been booked so I dont require any other adds for cars at this airport. The same happens with everything that I look at. I have nothing to hide but I dont need this service.........Can we turn this spy off.???

    You need to add some add on's to your browser, Adblock Plus is good for stopping all the pop up adds, there are also add on's to stop tracking, Do Not track Me used to be good but it has now changed to Blur and has it's own annoying pop ups when you fill in forms, try a few see which you get on best with.

    Thanks lenny I will spend a bit of time on that. It appears to have increased tenfold recently, what else they do with all this personal info I dread to think.
