    Now, when I'm using my new rMBP and Mavericks, I notice that Google Ads are appearing all the time everywhere. And this annoys me a lot. Before, on PC, they wasn't there.

    Does anybody have an idea how to remove them?

    Haven't noticed any google ads anywhere, so I'm not sure what you mean. Sounds like you may have installed something that causes your problem.

    Can you elaborate what you mean with "everywhere" (a screenshot perhaps) ?

    Can you please tell me how I make a screenshot? I'm very new to Mac, sorry.

    Hit shift-command-4 (all three keys together) and then select the area you want to grab.

    Are these popup windows you are seeing?

    This should take care of them. Its the AdBlock extensions available in Firefox, Chrome and Safari.

    Super! Glad its working and you no longer have to see those pesky ads. Keep in mind that a lot of websites generate revenue from those ads, so be sure to disable the adblocker on your favorite websites to help support them. I'll gladly view a few ads to keep my favorite websites alive!
