    I keep finding these small ads appearing on every webpage I open. If I open the picture a new tab the link is:http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com

    But it seems to be something to do with AdChoices and also to be related to: http://googleads.g.doubleclick.net

    I'm assuming this is one of Google's little toys, but can it be removed or blocked?

    Ok, I tried to upload a screenshot but the ad (middle of the screen regardless of scrolling) seems to prevent much of each webpage from working.

    Check which Safari extensions you have (in Settings). There are a few bad eggs that include ads. AwesomeScreenshot is one of them, but it doesn't look like you have it installed.

    Next, install a Safari extension called AdBlock.

    Then, relax.

    Looks like you have an extension or some adware running on there causing this.

    Check your extensions and remove anything you are not sure about.

    Also, run this adware scanning tool to remove any adware.
