Ever heard of a "hosts file"? Google it. Create one. Assign that site to redirect to null, 127.0.0.1.

Do that with every source URL that brings you content that bugs you.

Never see their garbage again. It just goes NOWHERE.

Some viruses create a hosts file that has entries in it for all the major antivirus websites, so you can't
get to those sites to get help. So if you know to look for the hosts file, you can edit or delete it and restore site access.

Between my hosts file and my ad blockers I enjoy a very advertising-free internet. It's wonderful.
