There are two annoying large boxes that keep popping up and 'bouncing' that tell me I can win a bloody ipad. Is there a way of getting rid of them?
I've ticked the 'no ads' thing on You Tube but these two things I can't get rid of and they only appeared today!

If I search for something, when I run down the page, the big box is there, 'bouncing' all the time, in the middle of the page.

I don't know where it came from but I want rid of it!

Can anyone help?

Which browser are you using?
If it's Firefox,Chrome or Opera then I'd suggest you install the free plugin called Adblock Plus.
It'll improve your internet experience no end not just on youtube

Internet explorer.
Ahh,I'm not an IE user

There are adblockers around for Internet Explorer but they may not be free.

I've downloaded an IE adblocker, but they still pop up.

And now my URL drop down box shows my bookmarks!

I don't know what the hell's wrong with my computer. It was fine yesterday!

Have you thought about changing browser? I use Chrome with the Adblock Plus extension and have had no problems for years. I can't remember the last time I used IE
