Angry Darn Ads are still here

I upgraded my account to rid myself of those pesky ads. You know the ones which say, "UPGRADE YOU ACCOUNT TO GET RID OF THIS ADS.
well it hasn't worked. Help Please!

Re: Darn Ads are still here

For those running chrome and fire fox browsers, you can load an extension in the browser called adblock plus, which pretty much stops all ads from Google and elsewhere.

Just fyi.

Loaded Adblock plus and TrueBlock, I'll let you know how they work.
I hope they're as good as they claim. Thanks for the link.

You might also want to down-load and enable NoScript in Firefox. The amount of crap scripts on these pages can really slow page loading and intrusions.

FWIW...
