How to remove “Ads not by this site” and “Ads not by Google”

I really don’t know what happened to my computer. I recently download Google Chrome and this is the first time I used this as my default browser. I like it a lot because it is faster and less pop-ups unlike the latest version of IE. It works fine for a couple of days until this morning after doing video search and visiting some web sites, some useless things appeared. I am now seeing “Ads not by this site” and “Ads not by Google” on top of the browser and I am sure it is beyond Google.

I try to resolve this problem by reinstalling Chrome but it did not work either. I also run hijack this and found a number of cookies. After removing them, there are still no changes. Problems still unresolved. “Ads not by this site” and “Ads not by Google” is still hanging there.

I am sure that there is exact method to remove “Ads not by this site” and “Ads not by Google” links that I don’t have to reformat computer and reinstall Windows. Do you know how?

    About two weeks ago, I also have that annoying thing. An add-on could be causing all that pop-up advertisements. You can try removing ‘unknown’ add-ons/extensions using this method.

    – Launch Google Chrome.
    – You can see a wrench icon on top-right corner of Chrome, click that and choose Tools > Extensions.
    – Chrome will provide you with a set of list. Make sure that you will only leave extensions that are familiar to you. Everything else that looks suspicious unusual, you need to delete them.

    Hope this can be useful.

    I removed the extension called Chrome Tips and that fixed the issue. I’m sure this scam is being run by hundreds of these apps.

    Go to the Wrench Icon (to the right of the URL bar) —-> Settings —> Extensions

    Play around with enabled extensions by disabling each one in turn and seeing which one takes out the Ads.

    Worked for me

    Hoera! Het werkt inderdaad om bij extensies de irrittie te verwijderen.
    Maar een volgende irritatie bron volgt. De zoekmachine wordt traag.
    Is de technologie er nu om de mens te irriteren?

  34. mr_mc_levin says:

    many many thanks for you guys.. deleting the extension fixed my problem. the ads gone now. the only thing you have to do is going to settings > extensions, and delete the suspicious one. cus that one is the virus.

    thanks a lot again..

  35. Emma says:

    I deleted the extensions but the ads are still there! What do I do?

  36. Andrew says:

    That helped so much, I was having the exact same problem. I simply removed all ‘added by 3rd party’ extentions that I didn’t install myself and they went away immediately, great advice. Thanks.

  37. Rich says:

    aww that was great. thanks so much

  38. Yanko says:

    On the Google Settings, on Extensions Usually tells you the software in charge of that extension, in my case I found a little software called “lyrics Container” causing this ads even on Google HomePage, Internet Explorer and Google Chrome Explorers.

    if you don’t see it, just restart the PC on Safe Mode and Run malwarebytes.

  39. Jigar.T says:
