    Hi Steve,

    The ads you're seeing are injected by malware on your computer, specifically the Ads by FlashMall virus. AdBlock can only block ads that were on web pages in the first place.

    We recommend following the instructions on The Safe Mac's Adware Removal Guide, which include running an antivirus/antimalware scan and removing any browser extensions you don't remember installing.

    Please see the following Knowledge Base articles for general information about AdBlock and malware:
