Damned nuisance, as the only way to get rid of it is to shut down DC on my machine and come back later
If it was such a waste of time, so many of us would not use and recommend it. What browser are you using? Firefox with AdBlock works great.

AdBlock works great with my browser--- Chrome. I have Windows 7 on a Dell laptop.
I don't know much about the innards of computers but just enough to know that sometimes 'thingys' on one computer (and not on another) will contribute to the difference between how thingys work.

Thingys include apps among other thingys. Hope this helps! LOL

Yes, well, that's not a good reason to make the blanket statement that it's a waste of time.
