Question Seeing X rated advertisements

I keep seeing ads to watch XXX movies where the google ads are displayed. Just want you to know because I didnt think you wanted that type of advertising on here.

hi sarah, I'd check for some kind of worm or malware on your computer. google doesn't accept this type of advertising so it's probably not coming from google. what will typically happen is that you'll unknowingly download a little program from somewhere that will hijack your ad space and show something else there instead.

if that *is* the case, be sure and report back in case anyone else has a similar problem.

probably find or buy a utility that scans for and eliminates that type of thing. I'm not saying I know for a fact that's your problem, but I'd guess that it is.

I'm not a big Windows user so I may not be the best source for a recommendation, but we use Norton on our one Windows machine and that seems to do an okay job.
