I have suddenly started getting all sorts of ads appearing in the bottom L/H corner and would like to know how to stop them.The site that is mentioned is www.heavy-r.com I looked for a way on Google and one way that was mentioned was to go to the Chrome menu the three vertical dots top L/H corner click on them then go to settings and then to notifications to turn off what needs turning off.But when I did that could not see notifications.My os is Windows 7

I certainly do not visit these sort of sites but it has obviously come from somewhere.There are other ads as well such as my Norton protection has elapsed and some about Britcoin and some with Richard Branson talking about a way of making easy money.I do not have Norton installed.Two have just appeared both saying Your Norton has expired today renew now for 2020

Virus and malware scans, and install an adblocker.

I have done the following which seems to have worked. Opened Google then clicked on the three vertical dots in the top R/H corner then clicked on settings then on advanced then on site settings then on notifications then found the site and clicked on block which seems to have worked.
