It’s not surprising that internet users continue to look for ways to block ads on Edge. You’ve probably noticed that just about every time you visit a website, you’re exposed to online advertisements. Some of them are fine, some are intrusive, and many can be annoying; whether they are pop-up ads, audio ads, or video ads that interrupt what you are trying to do. Even worse? They slow down your browser and sometimes dramatically increase page load times.

Please be aware that if you are seeing aggressive pop-ups or the same ad on every webpage you visit, that can be a sign that you’ve downloaded adware. Adware comes in many forms.

All of these symptoms point to adware or another form of malware. Here’s how to remove malware or adware if you suspect you’ve been infected.
Luckily, adware is not commonplace. And it’s certainly not as commonplace as online ads, which have never been easier to remove simply by installing AdBlock for Edge. Let us do the heavy lifting and block intrusive Edge ads for you, so you can get back to distraction-free browsing.
