You can use third party ad-blockers as noted above.

Also make sure the machine has been fully scanned for viruses and the user is not going to dodgy websites. Default settings for ads for Edge, Chrome and IE work fairly well.

Lianne,
The first thing to do is reset the chrome browser as an add on has probably been installed on that browser
Top right of chrome click the 3 little buttons>Settings>Scroll all the way down and select advanced>scroll all the way down to "Restore settings to their original defaults"> Click Reset Settings   Uncheck "Help make chrome better........"
