Re: Ad won't go away
Did you clear all five of the items I listed?

AD WENT AWAY!
I went back and checked and it looked like I did but cleared it again anyway; then I noticed it asked about clearing Bing history so I did that too AND SOMETHING WORKED!! THE PAGE IS GONE. HALLELUJAH!!!

Thank you, jar.

Alas, it came back
But it was my fault, I clicked on another one of those ads. Now I'm thinking Genomicus was right and it is a virus that attaches specifically to those ads. I can get rid of it again, at least I think I did, I'm afraid to look right now, but if it's a virus I need to do something about that.

Re: Alas, it came back
Download and install malwarebytes free version from malwarebytes.org Then do a scan and it will remove all malicious programs (if you've never done it before you wI'll probably find hundreds). The adware you are having problems with should be detected and removed by the program.

Whoever calls me ignorant shares my own opinion. Sorrowfully and tacitly I recognize my ignorance, when I consider how much I lack of what my mind in its craving for knowledge is sighing for... I console myself with the consideration that this belongs to our common nature. - Francesco Petrarca

"Nothing is easier than to persuade people who want to be persuaded and already believe." - another Petrarca gem.

Ignorance is a most formidable opponent rivaled only by arrogance; but when the two join forces, one is all but invincible.
