I was surfing web looking to buy a car. I wish I could tell ProBoards that I bought one and that they can change my own personal ads here from CARS to something else. LOL (I get ads for cars at top and bottom of my screen.) I'd like to change now to something else...maybe books or Instant Pots or coffee pots or recipe software or, I know: DRINKS ... or maybe MEXICAN FOOD! I don't mind the ads at all...rather have them than us pay $$ to have them gone. But anyway: What are your ads?

Mine are furniture and women's clothing (currently Christopher & Banks) from numerous places! Tempting array, very tempting...and much less expensive than a car. I think to change your ads all you have to do is google something different, or a particular store...seems that's when my choices change.

Sitting by my PC I have so far seen ads for Reddi Whip, Recycle, Be a Dad and something about donations for medical purposes. Pretty generic I think. If I'm haunted by ads for a product I've searched for I can often click a corner saying Ad Choices. That gives me the option to avoid those particular ads and get others instead. A year ago it was getting problematic. Had looked for a bra (stores don't carry my miniature size). After that the ads popping up featured lingerie that almost made me blush. That's when I came across this trick. I take ads for Reddi Whip any day even if I'd never touch that stuff in real life.
