Sorry, dont know to much about PC's so need some advice plz.I have a near new laptop, came with a security/anti virus programme (on a pen-drive thingy) "Trend Micro Maximum Security" its called.Anyway since I've installed it I seem to have alot of adverts on side of my screen and some words in texts (like on the msg board) will be highlighted blue & when I scroll over them an advert gets displayed!

I have only really noticed it since I installed the TREND programme but it may have been like this from new,

Try uninstalling trend and try another av such as Avast free home, or Panda Cloud. Both free. Can't be much good it they offer inducements of free flash drives.

Thanks, will try that then.It came either on disc or flash-drive & I picked flash drive just cause i thought it was easier! Think I had to pay an extra $30 or $40 for it when I got the laptop

Clean out your history/cache.
You can use something like Ccleaner from piriform.
