AdBlock automatically downloaded on my old computer that I rarely use. It came with a request for another payment. I paid after I downloaded on my main computer. Why did it download on the other computer? Why was I asked to pay a second time?

I think AdBlock is great, but I don't need it on a computer that is rarely used.

    You have probably "Signed in to Chrome" on that computer. That syncs your settings, bookmarks and extensions across your computers, phones and tablets.

    Don't worry, though. You can go to chrome://settings and disable the syncing of Extensions by clicking the "Advanced Sync Settings" button then change "Sync Everything" to "Choose what to sync". You can then disable syncing extensions by unchecking it.

    You can then uninstall AdBlock on that computer (from chrome://extensions) without uninstalling it on all your computers.
