For what the option "Allow non-intrusive advertising" is needed?

I have completed all the previous steps, but still see ads !!!

1.It happens that advertising is built into a code of a page and can not be removed without breaking the structure of the site.

2. In the filter lists there are no rules allowing to block this type of advertising. Wait a bit, most likely in the near future it will be updated and ads will be removed from the web page

3.It is also possible that advertising is built on a site by a virus, malware extension or a browser plugin. You need to check your computer with antivirus and remove suspicious browser extensions and plugins.

Please email us if the advertisement is not removed from the website after all your attempts. We will definitely check and solve this problem.
