StopAd on my computer

Postby jack1 » Sat Jan 27, 2018 11:39 pm

As I get really hacked off with the ads on my computer I downloaded a programme called StopAD does anyone know it and if so will it cause a slowdown on my system. It does stop the ads but my computer has slowed. Do we have an expert who can advise?......Thanks Jack

Hi Jack
I don't know StopAd, but I have several ad killers running in Chrome which don't appear to be slowing things down.
You could try AdBlock, AdBlockPlus, AdGuard or uBlock Origin and see which suits your system best.

I must have found a free version - certainly didn't pay for it! :)

I am using AdBlock from long 4 years and it really works and never slowdown my system. both AdBlock and Adblock Plus claims that it’s the most popular ad blocker and both have over 40 million users. However, AdBlock has almost 2x more ratings than Adblock Plus on Chrome Web Store, so I guess it’s safe to assume that it’s the most popular ad blocker on Google Chrome.
