I have a fairly recent version of AdBlock on my computer. The only problem that I have with it is that I am inundated with ads on a daily basis! What to do?

what version ?

upload example screenshot with the ads you get and also provide links to example pages with ads

scan your system for malware / adware
use malwarebytes antimalware (free version) ==> https://www.malwarebytes.org/
and adwcleaner http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/

FTR there are extensions named "AdBlock" and "Adblock Plus" for Edge, and this forum is intended for the latter; anyway, if your ads mostly come from streaming media sites, the problem may be that Edge extensions can't block ads requested by plugin content: viewtopic.php?p=157426#p157426

the problem may be caused by windows profile corruption, try to create another profile with administrator privileges and then install adblock for edge, it worked for me.
