    anyone else getting a lot of adware when playing the games?

    I have an ad block built into my browser. am on Windows 10 and have a fairly new system and good security programs. Obv since they're telling me I have adware, right? It's the only place it could be coming from. I'm playing the games off browser,
    so my ad block doesn't work.

    I can't even get thru a few jumbles or wordaments before I get several ads and have had to walk away from the games for a few hrs just to stop getting so many ads.

    :)

    I am playing wordament and jumble and the ads are after practically every board/game. I'd be ok with that, it's a bit of a nuisance. What I'm NOT ok with is having adware tagging along with the games. The games are the only new thing in my computer world,
    and it's now i'm picking up the adware.

    I recommend UBlock.org and uBlock Origin ad blockers work really well, intrusive ads are everywhere also I'd check your Host file in windows system32,drivers,etc a lot of av + spyware software will add things in there if your unsure of how
    to just google how to there's lots of help available.

    Is it possible that you downloaded some "free" tools from the Internet? Like for example YouTube Downloader/Converter, or maybe you downloaded usually ad-free software like VLC Player and the likes from a download portal instead of the official website,
    that bundles adware in their own custom installer that installs VLC afterwards?

    Also check your browser, if there are advertising add ons (e.g. search bars) that got added, that simply go past the ad blocker?

    What games do you have ad issues with specifically?

    Ads are becoming worse and worse to the point when watching a youtube video it feels like watching regular tv with how many times the video is interrupted, especially now that they are playing 2 ads.

    no it's really not. I've been really careful about that. I mostly chat and don't play 3D games. I'm not that tech savvy, so I don't pick up the bells and whistles. The newest thing I've done is download the Microsoft games to play off line. And my adware
    is getting out of hand as a result.
