We have just started running our own ads on our site but are now getting bombarded with complaints from users that "Russian Bride" ads are showing up below our ads.

We know this is caused by AdWare like the Ask tool bar etc.

My question is, does any one know how to stop the AdWare from affecting our site?

The Ask Toolbar is a client add-on and you have no control over it. Are you sure that's what is happening or do you think your site has been hacked and code is being injected? – JCL1178 Jan 23 '13 at 0:06
It is definitely the Ask toolbar (among others) What I'm wondering is if there is a way of intercepting the client side code injection (or what ever the toolbar is doing) using jQuery or something? – StefWill Jan 23 '13 at 1:21
You have no control over their browser or tool-bars and no actual way of detecting their add-ons so scripts wont help. Change your ad coding so the toolbars cant detect it – Simon Hayter Jan 23 '13 at 3:05
