    My nexus 7 has suddenly started to open Chrome whilst I am reading my newspaper without any input at all from me. It always opens https://www.pubads.g.doubleclick.net etc etc and it has got a bit annoying. I can find lots of suggestions for stopping this on a windows machine but can not find any solution that fits with my Nexus 7 which is running an up to date version of Marshmallow. Can anyone offer me a way to either remove whatever is causing this problem or alternatively to block chrome from visiting this site. Thanks in advance.

    Thanks, I will give it a try. I have disabled chrome and installed ghostery.

    Here we go again, reading the paper, ghostery opened up with pubads.g.double click.net not available. So that was an unsuccessful try. I will try Adblock browser.

    Problem solved. I tried everything I could think of including resetting the nexus and starting again with a new google account so as not to have any chance of contamination coming back from settings that had been backed up. When I got the same problem again as soon as I had completed the reset I knew it was nothing I could do anything about. The problem always starts with reading the Telegraph newspaper using their app so I emailed their digital services and quickly received a reply back that they were aware of the problem affecting a number of clients and that they were working to a solution that would appear in the next release of their software.
    Thank you for your help it was most appreciated
