Windows 7: Clearing Advertisements

Clearing Advertisements

I have been shopping on the internet for a couple months for a new mattress. I have purchased one and on every site I go to I still get ads for mattresses. Will clearing my temporary files and cache get rid of those so I can get different ads? Thanks,

That should help if you include cookie cleaning. I use CCleaner every time I close my browser.

A similar thing happened to me last week. I ordered a 16 oz. mug lid from a company called Tervis. The next site I went to had a Tervis banner as on their site.

What you are describing is interest based ads, you can opt out of most of the big ad providers here - Consumer Opt-out | NAI: Network Advertising Initiative

Tracking cookies can also be a big problem.
I use Super Anti Spyware along with other programs.

The Network Ad initiative identified 107 companies customizing ads for my browser, it only let me opt out of 7 of them.
