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

But it seems to be something to do with AdChoices and also to be related to:

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.
Register on MacRumors! This sidebar will go away, and you'll see fewer ads.
