    How can I get rid of advertisings posted from AdChoices?

    Hello eightforums members. My question is: how can I delete advertisings by adchoices, because they appear every time I open a page (any site) on my laptop. They look like advertising banners with AdChoices sign in the bottom. According to Remove AdChoices: removal for Chrome, Firefox, Explorer | ScaryBear Software I can clean my browser and remove them. But it doesnt help. May be you know some system - removal - scanner, which can help me. Or, maybe, free Antivirus which can block this advertisings? My Avira free is good but can not block this advertisings. Thank you.
