Why are all the ads in Spanish?

I bought a new computer and all of a sudden all the ads in DS are in Spanish. It doesn't happen when I log in under our other computer There's no cache to clear as there's been very little activity in this computer. Are you guys trying to tell me something? Like, maybe I should speak more Spanish to my kids?

I'm having the same problem, although I thought it was because I did some searches for my ESL homework.

it is! Some sites save "cookies" to sites you visit. Overstock and zappos are ones that come to mind, if you visit them then come back to DS you will see ads for them.

go to your browser preferences and clear your cookies and you will get english ads again.

Yeah, me neither. I have Kelloggs comparte tu desayuno. Just in case anyone is wondering, I WILL NOT comparte mi desayuno! I do not share my food with anyone at all. And since I have pictures showing that as a kid I looked just like those "save the children" foundation kids, I believe I get a free pass on not sharing my food with other needy folk. Cuz I'm amazing like that

I was having that same problem too! Was really strange! I wasn't doing any searches related to Spanish, and it was a new computer too! But I downloaded AdBlock Plus and I have no ads now!
